Republican Gov. Matt Bevin has appointed a new board of trustees for the University of Louisville that is nearly identical to the one he created last year that lead to the school being placed on probation.
The accrediting body for the University of Louisville says it has placed the school on probation because Republican Gov. Matt Bevin interfered with the board of trustees' decisions and did not use a "fair process for the dismissal of board members."
Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear says Republican Gov. Matt Bevin's decision to abolish and replace the University of Louisville board of trustees could affect the accreditation of all the state's public universities.
