(Frankfort, KY) - State House Speaker David Osborne says Governor Matt Bevin is still short of votes for his proposed pension bill.
Osborne says changes the governor made do not address lawmakers' main concern.
The Speaker says House members want to ensure that employees in the groups affected by higher pension costs would have the option of retaining their current benefits.
