Beshear Vetoes Disclosure Bill

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has vetoed a bill that would have shielded an array of information about judges, police and prosecutors from public scrutiny in the state.The measure passed shortly before the legislative session ended and had drawn a backlash from open-records advocates.The governor’s veto kills the measure this year, since the Republican-dominated legislature won’t have a chance to consider an override.In his veto message Thursday, Beshear said the bill was “overly broad” and “impractical.”
