In announcing a pension reform plan Wednesday, Gov. Matt Bevin said a special session to consider the proposal won’t be called until “we’re ready.”
He said the session would be five days, the minimum number of days it takes for a bill to get through the legislative process.
He previously has promised to call a special session by the end of this year.
Special legislative sessions cost taxpayers $65,505 per day, according to the Legislative Research Commission’s estimate. Governors and legislators want to limit the cost by keeping such sessions to five days.
