Kentucky house Democrats are expected to introduce legislation today aimed at improving coal mine safety.

Greenville Democrat Brent Yonts says the proposal will be similar to the legislation passed earlier this week in West Virginia.

The announcement would come just one day after the state's top mine safety regulator resigned.

Paris Charles says he's stepping down effective Friday to spend more time with his family.
