State Lawmaker: "Confederate Pension Must Go"

More than a half-century after the last Civil War veterans died, a chapter in Kentucky law still offers a $50-a-month pension to any veteran who can prove service in the Confederate Army. State Rep. Adam Koenig, R-Erlanger, pre-filed a bill to repeal Kentucky Revised Statutes chapter 206 on Confederate pensions. "There's so much stuff in the law that's a waste, that needs to be repealed." Koenig said.
