Gov. Matt Bevin met with members of the Kentucky Poor People’s campaign after the group rallied outside his office for nearly an hour on Tuesday.

The Poor People’s Campaign was protesting an emergency regulation signed by Bevin that limits visitors’ access to the Capitol.

But in the 20-minute meeting with Bevin, the group’s leaders elevated issues like school shootings, health care and voting rights for people who have felony records.
