FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican lawmakers are hoping to win
favor with Kentucky voters by offering to work for free.
The deal would be good during special legislative sessions that
become necessary when lawmakers don't get their work done in
regular sessions, as was the case earlier this year when a budget
wasn't enacted on time.
House Republican Leader Jeff Hoover said the proposal will be a
top priority for GOP lawmakers when the General Assembly convenes
in January. They will have to convince a majority of their
colleagues to go along with the plan.
All 100 House seats are up for election this year in Kentucky,
and Hoover said Republicans are hoping to win enough of them to
become the majority party.
