Kentucky Governor Calls Special Session
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear called a special session of the General Assembly to begin Tuesday, September 7.
The call comes two weeks after the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled a lower court was wrong to block new laws limiting the scope of the governor’s emergency powers, giving the Republicans’ legislative supermajority a substantial say over any new policy measures to address the pandemic.
The session will focus on legislation addressing the pandemic, but Beshear is asking lawmakers to consider a few unrelated matters.
