Stumbo Wants Morehead State Records After School Opposes His Bill

Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo is asking for spending records of Morehead State University's President and Regents.  Stumbo filed an Open Records Act request February 17 seeking the travel expenses and other records of President Wayne Andrews, his staff, and the 11 members of the Morehead Board of Regents.

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. Morehead leaders say they are against the measure on the grounds that it would divert coal severance tax dollars and could hurt Morehead's enrollment and programs.
