Senate Committee Approves "War on Louisville" Bill

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- A Kentucky Senate committee approves a bill that opponents say is a "War on Louisville."

The measure was significantly amended before its passage.   It no longer gives the governor power to appoint Louisville's mayor and Metro Council members in case of vacancies.   Also, the bill no longer limits the mayor to two terms.

The legislation gives subpoena power to the Metro Council.

Mayor Greg Fischer says the bill micromanages Louisville government.

The measure now goes to the full Senate.
