Decision on KHSAA rules delayed

The Kentucky Board of Education decided Wednesday to ask lawmakers to wait another month before taking up the issue of whether the Kentucky High School Athletic Association's rules are in some cases too stringent.

The legislature's Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee was set to discuss the concerns about the KHSAA on Aug. 12.

But officials from the KHSAA and the Kentucky Department of Education said they still are working on language in the KHSAA bylaws.

The KHSAA decides whether students who transfer should have to sit out for a year before they can play sports.

State Rep. Bob Damron, a co-chair of the legislative subcommittee, is concerned about whether some of the rules go too far.

All of the KHSAA rules must pass the subcommittee's approval or the lawmakers can find the bylaws as a whole deficient.
