Kentucky lawmakers plan for another COVID-impacted session
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky lawmakers preparing for an action-packed session next year will have some basic operational challenges to overcome because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kentucky is now being hit by its worst outbreak since the pandemic began.
The legislature convenes in early January.
The outbreak raises a more practical question at the Capitol – how the General Assembly will function with an ongoing pandemic as the world awaits development and distribution of a vaccine.
Senate President Robert Stivers said Friday the COVID situation could limit what lawmakers can do. He says the process might be a bigger story than the policy issues.
