FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear is set to address a
joint session of the legislature on Tuesday in his annual state of
the commonwealth speech.
Details of the speech are being kept under wraps. Beshear
spokeswoman Kerri Richardson said she couldn't even disclose
general themes that the governor will address.
After a three-week break, lawmakers are expected to begin
arriving in Frankfort by midday Tuesday. The joint session of the
House and Senate is slated to begin at 7 p.m.
Beshear has said he will push a limited agenda in the
legislature this year. One of his top priorities is a bill that
would gradually raise the minimum school dropout age from 16 to 18.
