Lexington, KENTUCKY: The Kentucky State Legislature convened briefly last week and started off the 2013 session by re-electing Rep. Greg Stumbo (D) Speaker of the House, and electing a new Senate President in Republican Robert Stivers.[1]

This session will only last for 30 days, but undoubtedly pension reform will be brought up as one of the highest legislative priorities. At a major event held by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce marking the start of the legislative year, Rep. Jeff Hoover (R) stated that restructuring the pension system should be the legislature's number one priority, a sentiment echoed by the Chamber.[2]
