House bill 4145 conference committee set to resume this morning

House bill 4145 conference committee set to resume this morning

"More needs to be done, and it's important for the country to be united in the same way the 17 families united in support of this bill", Mr Pollack said after the vote.

Legislation to reform to the state's pension plans cleared its first legislative hurdle Wednesday passing the Senate State and Local Committee with a 7-4 vote.

"It is my firm belief that Congress should live by the laws it passes, and this bill is a step in the right direction", Grassley wrote. She's unhappy the bill will reduce her annual cost-of-living-adjustment from 1.5 percent to 1 percent.

The rallies come amid a national movement for teachers.

The bill cuts some benefits now enjoyed by state workers and teachers, including a reduction in cost-of-living-adjustments for retired teachers, and moves new hires into a hybrid cash balance plan.

Lexington ophthalmologist Dr. Angela Thompson says a comprehensive eye exam with her patients have, in some cases, opened the door to detecting other diseases which would have otherwise gone undiscovered. "I can't speak for Republican members".

The proposal would not let 17-year-olds marry someone who is "in a position of authority or special trust" over them or anyone who is more than four years older than they are. Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey warned that teams might decline to play at the University of Mississippi and Mississippi State University.

Estimates indicate that Kentucky is in a $41 billion hole with regards to funding pensions over the next 30 years.

"This bill would get in the way of homicide investigations by making it hard for law enforcement officers to uncover the facts in a shooting", Howard said.

For one, the bill would provide shooters accused of wrongdoing the opportunity to file a motion with the court calling for a hearing to make a determination before a trial that a defendant used reasonable defensive force.

The proposed changes come during a time of increased tensions in public education. Those who have military or law enforcement experience or who teach Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps programs could be eligible, with 144 hours of training.

Asked if he was anxious about the possibility of a strike, Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin said: "The reality is this, I'm saving the pension system". "If they are upset about it, it's either they are ill-informed or willfully blind..."

"In all honesty, we think a $10 million reduction to Medicaid is just prudent", he said. Watch for more details here and on the air as they develop. He also suggested the legislature should pass legalized casino gambling and use taxes generated by casinos to pay down the retirement funds' liabilities.

The measure would still allow people to challenge other gun restrictions.

There was also talk of cuts to Medicaid, which are possible, but House Speaker Tim Armstead said that would be on the bottom of his list to cut.
