Merit System Task Force Meets

Frankfort, KY – The Governor's Merit System Task Force is scheduled to meet Monday and Attorney General Greg Stumbo is expected to attend.
In announcing its creation last month, Governor Fletcher charged the panel with developing a plan that protects state workers but also ensures Governors can "advance his or her vision".
Fletcher told the members of the panel to study the law and recommend changes for consideration during the General Assembly's next session.
Fletcher has said Kentucky's current personnel law is outdated and confusing and blamed it for the criminal charges pending against top members of his administration.
