Kentucky Lawmakers Pass Coronavirus Relief Measure
By The Associated Press
FRANKFORT - 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.

Lawmakers also 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.
