Speaker Battle Underway For Kentucky House

A dramatic race for speaker of the Kentucky House comes Tuesday as the General Assembly begins its organizational session.

Longtime speaker Jody Richards faces a challenge from former attorney general Greg Stumbo.

On the table later in the session will be how the state will deal with a budget shortfall of more than $450 million.

This year's session is 30 days.
