Governor Beshear is expected to call the Kentucky legislature into special session this Monday. It comes after another hectic and long last day of the regular 2012 session Thursday. The governor says lawmakers will return to Frankfort early next week to take up the transportation budget bill and legislation to crack down on prescription drug abuse.
Beshear is criticizing Senate President David Williams for the failure to pass these two measures. Special legislative sessions on budget issues have become commonplace at the capital.
