kentuckystatecap300x300gFRANKFORT, Ky. (7/15/19) — Gov. Matt Bevin will convene the Kentucky General Assembly into special session beginning 8 a.m. EDT Friday.

Since the conclusion of the 2019 Regular Session, Bevin and his team have worked closely with state legislators preparing for a special session to save Kentucky’s quasi-agencies including regional universities, health departments, domestic violence centers and community health centers, from the financial stress caused by the state’s looming public pension crisis, the governor stated in a press release today.

Two and one-half months ago, Bevin publicly introduced a proposal to provide immediate fiscal relief to the state’s quasi-agencies and provide long-term options that will offer these organizations the ability to continue operation and save critical community services. This bill has been thoroughly vetted and improved with input from legislators, Bevin indicated. It is the only fiscally responsible plan that provides regional universities and quasi-governmental agencies with a path to a sustainable future.

A proclamation will be issued later this week in accordance with Section 80 of the Kentucky Constitution.
