Top Kentucky lawmakers have appointed an acting director for the Legislative Research Commission and took the first step toward reviewing the fact-finding and service agency for legislators.
House and Senate leaders meeting Wednesday appointed Marcia Seiler as acting LRC director. Seiler is director of the Office of Education Accountability.
Bobby Sherman recently resigned as LRC director. State police are investigating whether any laws were broken when Sherman returned to his office and shredded documents after his resignation. Two legislative workers have filed a lawsuit accusing former state Rep. John Arnold of sexual harassment.
The lawmakers also agreed to approach the National Conference of State Legislatures about conducting a performance audit of the LRC.
