KY Lawmakers Abandon Special Session Without Pension Bill Vote

Kentucky Capitol

(Frankfort, KY) - A special session of the legislature is over without a vote on the commonwealth's struggling pension system.  

The General Assembly voted Tuesday night to end the surprise special session.

Governor Matt Bevin called the special session Monday night to try to force lawmakers to come up with a solution to shortfalls in the pension budget before the new legislative term begins.  

House Speaker Pro Tempore David Osborne said the problem couldn't be solved in a five-day session.
