Kentucky lawmakers' recent practice of passing a multibillion dollar state budget just hours after it's agreed on behind closed doors would be tougher to carry out under one proposal pending for the 2009 General Assembly.

Another one would rescind a hefty pay raise legislative leaders approved earlier this year for the head of the Legislative Research Commission. And, a different plan would prohibit sex offenders from participating in Halloween activities that involve children.

The measures are among the more than 50 bills Kentucky lawmakers so far have prefiled before 2009's 30-day legislative session that starts in January. More are sure to be filed between now and when the legislature begins work on Jan. 6. The measures "pre-filed" so far offer a glimpse at what some legislators will be pushing this year.
