FRANKFORT, Kentucky — A state lawmaker is calling for the results of a review on the operations of Kentucky legislative staff to be made public.

The National Conference of State Legislatures was brought in to do the review after sexual harassment allegations last year prompted the resignations of a state lawmaker and the director of the Legislative Research Commission.

The Courier-Journal reports ( ) the conference issued findings in April. But the newspaper was told after an open records request that the full report could not be released because it is an unfinished draft.

Rep. Tom Riner, a Louisville Democrat, says the report should be released now. Riner says he is concerned that the release is being stalled until after the November election.
