Corbin suit ‘unfair’ to Knox taxpayers, Hall says

May 6, 2014

Corbin officials and a Corbin commission member have filed suit against Knox County stemming from legislation contained in a bill passed in the Kentucky General Assembly earlier this year.

The suit, that lists the City of Corbin and Joe “Butch” White as petitioners, questions the constitutionality of an amendment attached to House Bill 236.

In the suit, Corbin and White claim that an amendment filed by Sen. Robert Stivers is “special legislation” that differentiates Corbin and Knox County from other cities and counties in the state for no rational reason.  The content you are trying to view is available only to subscribers.
