Lawmakers Get Pay Withholding

Kentucky lawmakers agree to a pay withholding plan for the special session .

By law, state legislators are paid for every day including weekends that the General Assembly is in session.

Under the July 31 agreement, lawmakers won't be paid for three weeks in which they were technically in session but didn't work.

The move is expected to save taxpayers about $765,000.

There are about 138 lawmakers which are paid $300 a day.

An LRC spokesman says lawmakers are also looking at a plan to pay back any money they were overpaid during the session.
