Attorney General Andy Beshear is suing Gov. Matt Bevin for abolishing and then reinstating the boards of trustees of both the University of Louisville and Kentucky Retirement Systems, the state agency that manages the pensions of most state employees.
Bevin appointed new members and changed the number of seats on each panel on Friday. In both cases, Bevin said the moves were made to achieve a “fresh start.”
On Wednesdy, Beshear said Bevin had overstepped his power.
“The opportunity for abuse of power here is evident, and it’s scary,” Beshear said.
