State lawmakers are back in Frankfort for another special session.

The two pieces of legislation on the table this time are the two-year transportation budget and prescription drug abuse bill.

On Monday the House introduced the two pieces of legislation once again. The bills will head to committee on Tuesday and then voted on and sent over to the Senate again on Wednesday.

What the Senate does from there remains a mystery.

Senate President David Williams and Governor Steve Beshear have been at odds over the transportation budget, which caused the special session. Williams wanted Beshear to sign the budget and it's road plans into law last Thursday, thus keeping the governor from being able to line item veto any of the projects in Williams district. Beshear says Williams put too many of his districts road plans ahead of of other plans.

The Senate did convene for a few moments at 4pm on Monday. No action was taken by the Senate.

Each day of the special session costs tax payers more than 60-thousand dollars a day.
