Beshear Asks Court To Throw Out Lawsuit

Governor Steve Beshear is asking the Franklin Circuit Court to throw out the lawsuit Senate President David Williams filed against him.

Williams filed the suit last month claiming Beshear illegally curtailed legislative power by scrapping the legislature's highway construction plan and replacing it with one of his own.

In a motion filed yesterday, Beshear said the legislature's plan wasn't legal because it was passed after April 15th, the deadline for the general assembly to adjourn.
