Yonts Pulls Sponsorship from Mining Bill

The sponsor of a bill aimed at strengthening Kentucky's mine safety laws has withdrawn his support for the legislation.

State representative Brent Yonts says it had been "gutted" by a committee. Yonts says he isn't killing the legislation, but won't push it either.

House Speaker Jody Richards says the bill would strengthen mine safety laws, and legislators would continue working on the proposal.
