MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - Officials in Rowan County are taking a
stand against a proposal to add the private University of Pikeville
into the state's higher education system.
They say the proposal will not only hurt Morehead State
University, which is located in Rowan County, but would hurt the
economy in the area as well, according to The Independent
Rowan Fiscal Court held a special meeting Wednesday to pass a
resolution that urges legislators to reject a House bill that would
include UPike in the state system.
Lawmakers are expected to discuss the bill next week.
