Byline Today: Sexual Harassment Claims Against State Legislator, Coal’s Effects on Health and More

 

On Byline today, we’ll be talking about the sexual harassment allegations against a veteran Kentucky state legislator, coal’s effects on health and more.

WFPL and the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting broke the story about ethics complaint filed last week against state Rep. John A. Arnold Jr., a Democrat from Sturgis. Jonathan Meador and Phillip M. Bailey will discuss the latest with the now three allegations against Arnold.

Phillip will stick around to discuss the latest on possible changes to the Louisville Metro Council members’ discretionary spending and to the city’s liquor sales laws.

Erica Peterson will have an interview with Alan Lockwood, author of a book on the effects of coal on health.

And, on lighter notes, we’ll an interview with Wes Berry, author of a new book about barbecue in Kentucky.

And, while we’re talking food, Devin Katayama and I recently wandered around the Kentucky State Fair looking for the most and least healthful foods. We’ll hear that.
