Bevin, Conway to talk farm policy in Louisville

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s race for governor is taking off this week as the Democratic and Republican nominees are scheduled to debate farm policy in front of the state’s agriculture leaders on Thursday.

Republican nominee Matt Bevin and Democratic nominee Jack Conway are scheduled to participate in a Measure the Candidates Forum sponsored by the Kentucky Farm Bureau. It will be the second time the two candidates have appeared together at a publicized event. The forum is not open to the public but will be streamed on the Farm Bureau’s website at http://kyfb.com/livestream .

The candidates will likely answer questions about the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rules to regulate streams and ponds on farm land. Conway, who is also the state’s attorney general, has joined attorneys general from other states in a lawsuit asking a judge to block those rules.
