Beshear, AG Cameron Spar Over Mask Mandate

Beshear, AG Cameron Spar Over Mask Mandate

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has asked a county judge to rule on the legality of the governor’s recent executive order requiring masks in public.

Cameron said Friday that his office filed a motion in Scott County Circuit Court asking Judge Brian Privett if an executive order requiring public mask wearing complies with a restraining order issued by that court. Privett issued the two-page temporary restraining order on Thursday that the judge said blocks Gov. Andy Beshear from issuing future executive orders related to the pandemic, unless the governor first meets a list of requirements described in the order.

The governor said the ruling would be appealed and likely end up before the state Supreme Court.
