Kentucky lawmakers have just about two weeks to finalize bills before passing them along to Governor Bevin for his approval or veto. Pension reform and state budget bills, two top priority measures, remain in the ‘yet to be voted on’ category.

Senators Friday considered bringing a pension bill to the floor, but opted to send it back to committee for further review.  Senator President Robert Stivers was asked about closed door discussion on pensions.  The senate leader cited the ‘speech and debate clause.’
