A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Republican state representative from northeastern Kentucky could end up facing one of the state's most powerful Democrats for re-election next year under a legislative redistricting plan that could be unveiled later this week.
House Speaker Greg Stumbo said work is nearing completion on the always divisive task of redrawing legislative boundaries.
Stumbo said the latest proposal would have GOP state Rep. Jill York of Grayson in the same district as Democratic House Floor Leader Rocky Adkins of Catlettsburg. The two had been placed in the same district under a measure that passed last year but that was later struck down by the Kentucky Supreme Court.
Redistricting is supposed to occur every 10 years to account for population changes found by the U.S. Census Bureau.
