Kentucky Politics Distilled: New Governor Puts Out Agenda, and Anti-Sanctuary City Bill Gets Changes

LRC Public Information

In Kentucky politics, Gov. Andy Beshear gave his first state of the commonwealth address, calling on the legislature to reach across party lines.

The state legislature finished its first full week, advancing a bill to move gubernatorial elections to even-numbered years, and the sponsor of an anti-sanctuary cities bill has made changes following criticism.

Jonese Franklin from member station WFPL talked to capitol reporter Ryland Barton for latest edition of Kentucky Politics Distilled.
