FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s attorney general has pushed back against some of the governor’s coronavirus-related orders. Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron is taking aim at restrictions on travel and gatherings that include church services. Cameron on Tuesday threatened a lawsuit to challenge Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear’s ban on mass gatherings, unless the governor allows in-person church services to resume. Beshear has said his mass gathering orders do not single out churches. Cameron also filed a motion in federal court contending that Beshear’s restrictions on out-of-state travel are unconstituional.
