Rumors continue to swirl about Governor Fletcher calling a special session and what will be on the agenda if he does.
While in Bowling Green on April 25, 2007, the governor said he’s looking to call a special session in early summer after the May 22, primary.
Under law, only the governor can set the agenda for the legislative session, which could include a discussion of the state pension plan and offering domestic partner benefits to employees at public universities.
“We’re looking at discussing that. I haven’t made a final decision yet - that as well as the projects at WKU. Some of those did not get done because we couldn’t afford them. Now we can,” Fletcher said.
On Tuesday, the University of Kentucky became the second public institution in the Commonwealth to offer domestic partner benefits to employees.
