Beshear Sets Special General Assembly Session for August 19


Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is calling the General Assembly back to Frankfort for a special session in August.Beshear issued the proclamation today. He’s asking state lawmakers to take on legislative and judicial redistricting during the special session, but says Congressional redistricting won’t be on the agenda.Lawmakers previously approved new districts for themselves based on the 2010 Census, but a judge threw them out, declaring the maps unconstitutional.The special session will begin August 19, and Beshear says he’d like the General Assembly to finish the session’s business within five days.
