Fletcher Signs Executive Order

Kentucky’s governor signs an executive order formalizing his decision to have lawmakers come back for a special session later this month.

Ernie Fletcher had ordered the legislature into a special session last week to deal with several issues, but were dismissed shortly after.

Kentucky legislators are now on a three-week break from the special session, but are still being paid because the legislature has not officially adjourned.

Legislators have indicated they won’t accept the money, but there’s a dispute over how they need to go about forfeiting the money.
