Kentucky Governor Signs Pension Bill as Special Session Ends
Gov. Matt Bevin signed a bill into law that allows Kentucky regional universities and “quasi” state agencies to avoid a massive spike in pension costs in exchange for exiting the state’s ailing pension systems.
Bevin called a special legislative session last week for lawmakers to address the issue after spending months working on the pension bill with Republican leaders of the legislature.
After Bevin signed the bill, the legislature ended the special session.
