Tomorrow is the final day of the 2012 Kentucky General Assembly and it will likely be a long one.
State lawmakers almost always set aside one day called a “veto day,” when they can over-ride any of the governor’s vetoes on the budget or elsewhere.
It’s unclear if there will be any over-ridden vetoes this time around, but State Senator Joey Pendleton says it will likely be a long day.
One major item left over this year is the state road plan, which State Senator Joey Pendleton says likely won’t include much new construction of roadways.
Initial design work on the northeast bypass around Hopkinsville is already funded, but the actual construction will likely not be funded in this year’s road plan, according to Senator Pendleton.
The General Assembly will also deal with the “pill mill bill,” which would require doctors across Kentucky to subscribe to the “KASPER” computer prescription tracking system to cut down on people who go to multiple doctors to get the same addictive medications.
