State lawmakers from Louisville joined Attorney General Andy Beshear to support legislation that could enable a statewide investigation into sexual abuse in the Catholic church.
House Democrat Jeff Donohue will sponsor the legislation.
It will allow statewide grand juries, which in turn would enable the attorney general's office to conduct investigations across multiple jurisdictions.
