The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has done some backpedaling with regard to changes he made to the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Nominating Commission in May.  Specifically, Bevin has issued a new Executive Order, which rescinds his previous changes by altogether abolishing the Workers’ Compensation Nominating Commission, creating a new panel called the Workers’ Compensation Nominating Committee and making new appointments to that new panel.

In addition to  re-naming the panel the Workers’ Compensation Nominating Committee, Bevin has reduced the number of members from 7 to 5.  He has also appointed a member of the “old” workers’ compensation nominating commission, Charles McCoy, to the new committee.  McCoy is a petitioner in the lawsuit filed against Bevin seeking an injunction against Bevin’s original executive order dissolving the Workers’ Compensation Nominating Commission. That panel was comprised of appointments of the Beshear administration.  Bevin’s earlier executive order reconstituted that panel with his own appointments.

The members of the new Workers’ Compensation Nominating Committee are:  Louis D. Kelly of Florence, Charles E. McCoy of Owenton, Runan S. Pendergrast of Lexington, Megan E. Mersch of Park Hills and Joshua W. Davis of Louisville.

Matt Bevin’s executive order abolishing the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Nominating Commission and then re-creating it with new members.” Shepherd said the temporary injunction will remain in effect until he issues a final judgment. An expedited hearing will take place on June 13, 2016.
