Attorney General Jack Conway sworn in for second term

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Attorney General was sworn in Monday to serve a second term.

He said his priorities for the next four years include passing prescription pill legislation, holding banks accountable for the mortgage foreclosure crisis, and investigating for-profit colleges' business practices.

Conway also wants to make sure students are educated about cybersafety and prescription pill abuse.

In his first term, Conway accused Marathon Oil of price gouging after massive flooding in Kentucky back in April.  He said Marathon Petroleum Company LLC illegally raised the wholesale price of gasoline and other motor fuels in markets across Kentucky during a time of emergency.

The focus on cybercrime continued an initiative from that first term, in which the Cybercrimes Unit he created investigates sexual predators on social networking sites.

He also investigated University Hospital's recently announced plans to merge with the parent company of Jewish Hospital and St. Mary's Healthcare.

Conway joined State Auditor Adam Edelen, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, State Treasurer Todd Hollenbach, and Agriculture Commissioner James Comer, all of whom were sworn in Monday.  Comer is the only Republican among them.
