This week in Kentucky politics, Gov. Matt Bevin’s special legislative session on pensions is finally taking place and Democrats think he’s tied the legislature’s hands.

Bevin and Democratic rival Andy Beshear clashed during a debate at the Kentucky Farm Bureau, and Kentucky lawmakers responded to President Trump’s inflammatory tweets.

Capitol reporter Ryland Barton has another edition of Kentucky Politics Distilled. 

 

 

Ryland is the state capitol reporter for the Kentucky Public Radio Network, a group of public radio stations including WKU Public Radio. A native of Lexington, Ryland has covered politics and state government for NPR member stations KWBU in Waco and KUT in Austin.
