Off-year Kentucky General Assembly flooded with work

By Scott Wartman, The Kentucky Enquirer

Kentucky legislators last week began the 30-day regular session of the General Assembly.

Some say that’s 30 days too many.

Lawmakers have often remarked that the 2013 session’s brevity will make passing legislation tough.

Instead, some still believe the schedule prior to 2001 was more efficient when the General Assembly met in a 60-day regular session every two years and met in special sessions in the interim when called by the governor.
