LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear announced Tuesday that he will ask the state's Supreme Court to decide whether Governor Matt Bevin has the authority to cut college budgets without the approval of the state legislature.

A state judge ruled last week that Gov. Bevin has the authority to do so.

Beshear argues it gives the governor's office too much power.
