FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A legislative panel reviewing a petition to impeach Kentucky’s governor has made filings from both sides open to the public. Deliberations on the matter were being conducted behind closed doors, however.

The Republican-led committee voted to make the petition by four Kentuckians public Wednesday.

It then went into a closed-door session. It calls for Gov. Andy Beshear’s impeachment for his restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19.

The Democratic governor has said there are “zero grounds” for his removal.

Beshear submitted a response to the impeachment petition.

The committee chairman says three of the petitioners then offered a written reply.
