The Wait Is Over

Friday, January 4th, 2013

No, not for the new season of “Downton Abbey,” which begins on KET Sunday at 9/8 pm CT.

The wait I’m talking about is everyone’s favorite drama playing at the state capitol in Frankfort for the next 30 days—the 2013 session of the General Assembly.

Lawmakers return to the city by the river next Tuesday, Jan. 8th for their “short” session; every other year they meet for a 60-day session. And, boy, do members have a lot on their plates.

This weekend on “One to One,” you’ll get to hear Gov. Steve Beshear outline what he’d like to see legislators tackle in the next few weeks. In addition to public employee pension reform, tax reform issues, and a rather interesting approach to getting an expanded gambling constitutional amendment on the ballot.  Beshear will also discuss his push to raise the age a young Kentuckian can legally stop attending public school from age 16 to age 18.

Then, on Monday night’s “Kentucky Tonight,” Beshear returns to KET and is joined by Speaker of the House Greg Stumbo of Prestonsburg and the new President-designate of the Senate Robert Stivers, of Manchester. Our topic, of course, will be the 2013 session of the General Assembly.

I hope you’ll be watching.
