Madisonville Medical Examiner Office to Stay Open

Changes made to the Kentucky House budget bill would provide funds allowing Madisonville’s medical examiner’s office to stay open another two years. The Justice and Public Safety Cabinet previously sought to close the office due to budget concerns and difficulty hiring a forensic pathologist since the position was left vacant in June. The change to the budget provides for the office’s annual operating costs and also prevents the office from relocating through the 2012-2014 fiscal years.
