LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has issued two executive orders designed to protect the public during the current winter weather.

The first is intended to make sure Kentuckians pay fair prices for things like gasoline. This will remain in effect for 30 days and may be extended if needed.

The second order will allow pharmacists to refill up to a 30-day supply of needed prescriptions without a doctor's refill order. Controlled substances are not a part of that order, which remains in place until next week.
