Kentucky Lawmakers End Special Session
Lawmakers ended a three-day special session by passing a $213 million package for flood recovery and a plan to help schools in eastern Kentucky.
Signed into law by Gov. Beshear on Friday, the law establishes the East Kentucky State Aid Funding for Emergencies (EKSAFE), to assist counties named in the federal declaration.
Legislators emphasized this is the first step and they expect additional legislation next year when lawmakers meet in regular session.
The General Assembly is scheduled to convene for the 2023 regular session on Jan 3.
