Kentucky legislature cancels Tuesday session
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky state legislature will not meet on Tuesday after a massive winter storm dumped nearly a foot of snow on some parts of the state.
The legislature did not meet on Monday because of Presidents Day. But lawmakers decided to cancel Tuesday’s session with significant snow accumulation in most of the state that will be followed by subzero temperatures the rest of the week.
Wednesday, the state Senate is scheduled to meet at 2 p.m. and the House of Representatives will meet at 4 p.m. Friday was the last day state Senators could file new bills. Wednesday is the deadline for House lawmakers to file new bills.
Gov. Steve Beshear urged people to stay off the roads if possible.
