FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDKY) – Once again, Kentucky’s State Capitol is closed to the public on Wednesday.

There is also a heavy presence of state police and the National Guard.

Police, along with military police and military humvees, state trooper cruisers and dozens of troopers and guardsman have surrounded the Capitol and access is extremely limited to the buildings and grounds.

It is pretty much the same picture seen on Sunday when the buildings and grounds were closed to the public.

State police say there have been no requests for demonstrations, rallies or protests, but on Sunday several did show up and they told us they were there to speak out against government overreach.

There are not many people working inside the buildings either, we were told that most LRC staff are working from home on Wednesday.
