(Frankfort, KY) - State Attorney General Andy Beshear is suing to stop the governor's teacher sick-out subpoenas.
The attorney general has asked the Franklin Circuit Court to stop the governor and the Labor Cabinet from forcing school districts to turn over the names of teachers involved in protests against pension reform plans.
Beshear says Gov. Matt Bevin's administration is unlawfully using state labor law to seek records and names of teachers to possibly fine them for allegedly using sick days to attend rallies.
Beshear is running in the Democratic primary for governor next month.
