How to confuse employers in Kentucky

Rep. Mary Lou Marzian pre-filed a bill that initially attempts to enforce wage fairness in the workplace but, deep in the bill, there is language that grants some extraordinary powers to the Executive Director of the Office of Workplace Standards:

"The executive director shall promulgate administrative regulations in accordance with KRS Chapter 13 A to specify any other matters necessary or appropriate to carry out the provisions of KRS 337.420 to 337.433 and 337.990(14)."

A somewhat similar bill passed the House of Representatives in the 2008 General Assembly.
