FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky lawmakers have passed a coronavirus-relief bill. The goal is to help workers and employers suffering economic damage from the pandemic.
The work came as lawmakers reconvened Thursday after a weeklong break due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Lawmakers also advanced a bill to expand the state attorney general's authority to regulate abortion in Kentucky, and they gave final passage to a bill allowing consumers to have spirits, wine or beer shipped directly to them.
Lawmakers have only a handful of days left in this year's abbreviated session because of the pandemic. They are scheduled to reconvene next week.
