Special Session Kicks Off In Frankfort

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) The Kentucky House has started a special session to consider legislation to help the state's financially troubled retirement system.

The state Senate is scheduled to begin its work later Monday afternoon.

Gov. Steve Beshear has called lawmakers into a special session to consider a proposed fix. Lawmakers say they are agreed on a temporary solution.

Beshear is scheduled to address a joint session of the General Assembly on Monday night.

He has also set up a group to study long-term solutions that the legislature can consider next year.
