Beshear Wants to Call Fall Special Session on Redistricting

It appears likely that Governor Beshear will call a special session of the Kentucky General Assembly to redraw legislative districts for the House and Senate.   The governor says details are still being worked out.

"I’m talking with legislative leaders in the House and Senate right now," Beshear said.   "And I think everybody, if we can work it out, would probably like to do it in the fall and let everybody have the summer while kids are out of school and they have some vacation time, and then wait until we get in back in school before we have the special session."

Beshear says he hopes the special session would not last more than five days.
