KY AG challenges Governor's COVID-19 Executive Orders
By Elizabeth Kuhn
Frankfort, KY - Attorney General Daniel Cameron has filed a brief in the Kentucky Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of Governor Beshear's COVID-19 executive orders.
The brief argues that the Governor's actions disregard the constitutionally mandated separation of powers, which strictly prohibits a Governor from exercising legislative power. The Governor's executive orders also violate Sections 1 and 2 of the Kentucky Constitution, which afford Kentuckians the right to earn a living and protects them from the accumulation and exercise of absolute and arbitrary governmental power.
The case continues in the Kentucky Supreme Court, and oral arguments are scheduled for September 17, 2020.
