Currently the Kentucky General Assembly is burning through a little over $60,000 of taxpayer money each day because it couldn’t accomplish its job in a timely manner. This extra time is most often referred to as a “special session.”
We should change that terminology.
Are these sessions really “special”? There have been “special” sessions in eight of the past 10 years. That is not special, that is a demonstrated lack of ability to get the job done and a show of disrespect to the citizens of Kentucky.
