Kentucky legislative session begins

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky lawmakers are back at work for the start of the legislative session.  They're expected to consider tax reforms and to search for ways to shore up the financially troubled pension system for government retirees.

A task force appointed by Governor Steve Beshear has recommended a series of changes to the state tax code that could generate more than $600 million in additional revenue.

Lawmakers have 30 days in this session, but if more work needs to be done, Beshear says he may call for a special session.
