Speculation about a General Assembly special session being called in June has been running rampant for weeks. The conventional wisdom is that the House and Senate will agree with Gov. Steve Beshear about a new package of tax increases and run back in town for a week of ridiculous speeches.
Affirming votes and collective backslapping will ensue. And real, positive change will be pushed off to another day. Again.
Forcing government transparency would be worth a week of legislative meetings. Heck, we might even get our promised efficiency study if we got our elected representatives to consider the long-term health of the state rather than the short-term health of their political careers.
