Grimes calls for constitutional amendment regarding public employee pensions

Judge refuses to temporarily block new election-related law

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is calling for the General Assembly to make all bills regarding public employee pension plans available for public viewing at least twenty-four hours prior to a vote.

Rep. Jody Richards, former Speaker of the House and the longest serving member of the Kentucky House of Representatives, has worked with Grimes to produce a bill for a constitutional amendment that would ensure that Kentuckians are given twenty-four hours to review legislation regarding any changes to public employees’ pension plans.
