Kentucky Auditor Mike Harmon

Statement from Kentucky Auditor Mike Harmon Regarding Governor's Lawsuit on House Bill 334

FRANKFORT, KY (May 6, 2022) – "Government works best when we work together. It is what those who elect us expect and deserve. But instead of bipartisanship when it comes to making sure we as elected leaders are held to the highest standards, Governor Beshear chooses to sue myself and the other duly elected constitutional officers.

It is the just the latest in a pattern of behavior where the Governor chooses to sue instead of trying to reach across the aisle for solutions.

There is an old saying that there is no 'I' in team, and it appears the Governor doesn't think it applies to him."
