Lawmakers hurriedly working to get bills passed

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Lawmakers were scheduled to reconvene Monday morning in a rush to pass some key measures before time runs out.

Still pending are bills that would ensure soldiers deployed overseas can vote in Kentucky elections and a bill that would raise the minimum age for dropping out of school to 18.

Four working days remain in this year's legislative session. Two are on Monday and Tuesday. An eight-day break will follow during which lawmakers won't official convene but will continue to work on bills. The final two official days are set for March 25 and 26.

The unfinished business includes conflicting proposals from the House and the Senate on how to shore up the state's pension plans for government retirees.

The governor has been working with lawmakers to craft a solution.
