Price-gouging not tolerated in wake or disasters

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Attorney Jack Conway is warning Kentucky businesses that price-gouging will not be tolerated in the wake of last week's deadly tornadoes.

At Conway's request, Governor Steve Beshear signed a consumer protection executive order over the weekend, implementing Kentucky's price-gouging laws statewide.

Doing this allows Conway's office the power to investigate accusations of price-gouging.
