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. That would be enough to cause, at least, some local high water issues. 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 with a major impact to travel across the region. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in. We could flirt with record lows again by Friday morning with some areas near zero.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A House committee is expected to unveil a legislative redistricting bill on Tuesday.
House State Government Committee Chairman Brent Yonts had expected his panel to take up the measure on Monday. But the Democratic lawmaker from Greenville said the bill isn't yet ready.
Lawmakers will need to rush to get the matter resolved, considering eight days remain in the current legislative session.
Redistricting is supposed to occur every 10 years to account for population changes found by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Legislation that passed last year was struck down by the state Supreme Court. Justices found the new districts weren't balanced by population and didn't comply with the "one person, one vote" mandate in federal and state law.
