State Senate To Vote On Pension Bill

The full KY Senate, convened in a special session, is expected to vote today on House Bill 1.The legislation hopes to address rising pension costs, and offer something of an escape clause, for regional universities and certain other agencies known as “quasi-governmental” bodies. Some critics, however, have questioned the bill’s legality.Even though concerns were brought up in the House earlier this week and Tuesday during a Senate hearing, Republican leaders say they are confident they have enough votes to pass the bill and send it on to Bevin’s desk.
