Kentucky’s contract with children’s agency remains in limbo

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear says Kentucky’s contract renewal with Sunrise Children’s Services remains in limbo, but he state continues to place youngsters in its care. It’s a new development in a monthslong dispute revolving around a clause in a new contract with the state that banned discrimination based on sexual orientation and that the children’s agency refused to sign. Sunrise has since been offered a revised contract reflecting what it has requested, and its attorney says that any additional language they are seeking is needed to comply fully with a recent Supreme Court ruling.
