FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky lawmakers will take up two of the biggest bills of the 2018 legislative session Wednesday.
The Senate State and Local Government committee will take up Senate Bill 1 at noon.
Republican leaders drafting the legislation backed off a proposal backed by Governor Matt Bevin to force state workers and teachers into a 401(k)-style plan.
Still, the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association and others opposed to the bill plan to rally in Frankfort.
Chairman of the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee, Rep. Steven Rudy, told the Herald-Leader the House's version of the state budget bill will be heard in a special committee meeting after the full House adjourns Wednesday afternoon.
Speaker Pro Tempore David Osborne told the Lexington Herald-Leader he expects both bills to be heard on the house floor Thursday.
