Special Session Called in Kentucky
Governor Bevin called a special session to find a resolution to the public employee pension plan. Two bills were introduced to reform the current plan.
The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled last week that a pension law passed last session was unconstitutional because it was passed improperly.
The Governor needs only 51 votes to pass a bill in special session compared to the 60 he would need in the regular session convening in two weeks.
The special session must last for at least five days.
