FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Speaker of the House Greg Stumbo is asking
for spending records of Morehead State University's president and
Stumbo filed an Open Records Act request on Feb. 17 seeking the
travel expenses and other records of President Wayne Andrews, his
staff and the 11 members of the Morehead Board of Regents,
according to the Lexington Herald-Leader and The Courier-Journal.
That was the same day the regents voted for a resolution
opposing a bill sponsored by Stumbo that would make the University
of Pikeville a public institution. The university said it is
against the measure on the grounds that it would divert coal
severance tax dollars and could hurt Morehead's enrollment and
The legislation is HB 260.
