Ridley Asks WKY Caucus to Work
             The chair of the West Kentucky caucus, Sen. Dorsey Ridley (D-Henderson) appealed to members to take up two bills during the last two days of the session. One bill, HB 107 will set up a separate transportation authority to evaluate highway projects for recommendation to the state. See the Fiscal Note on this legislation.

            The second bill, HB 229 is a potpourri of spending provisions -  money for horse racing, money for retraining, money for first time new home buyers, money for equipment and on and on.  HB 229

           Ridley's appeal to pass the bills runs counter to Speaker Stumbo's and the House majority's decision not to bring up legislation for a vote during veto days.


            More of this story is At the River's Bend, the online version of the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer.  Owen Covington, who covers Frankfort for the paper, wrote the piece. We consider him to be one of the most underappreciated reporters on the Frankfort beat.
