  • Legislators review positive changes around Kentucky

    Each year, the General Assembly’s work is split into two distinct areas: Its legislative session, which begins in January, and the interim, which starts in late spring and runs toward the end of the year.

    Although the public’s attention is understandably more focused on the time when legislators are debating the budget and any laws that might be adopted, the later period is important as well, because this is when my colleagues and I get a chance to take a closer look at the issues facing the state.
