The Kentucky Court of Appeals has reversed a ruling today to allow library districts to raise taxes by four percent each year without requiring a vote from taxpayers.

This move changes the outcome of a 2012 lawsuit filed by the Campbell County Tea Party which claimed the districts could not raise taxes without a voter referendum if they were created by a petition. About 80 Kentucky library districts were created by petition.

Medicaid managed care organization Kentucky Spirit has officially exited the commonwealth, leaving health officials with approximately 125,000 members to transfer to other MCOs.

The move occurred in the early morning hours Saturday after the Kentucky Court of Appeals had previously denied the state’s emergency motion for a mandatory injunction to keep Kentucky Spirit from leaving.
