Start date for 2013 legislative session Jan. 8

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Legislative leaders have approved the calendar for the 2013 session of the Kentucky General Assembly.

The constitutionally set start date is Jan. 8, which always is the first Tuesday after the first Monday of the new year.

In odd-numbered years, lawmakers meet for 30 days. But those days are broken up by a couple of lengthy breaks to last until late March.

The first four days will be used for organizational purposes, including electing or re-electing lawmakers to leadership positions, and for filing legislation. Lawmakers will then break until Feb. 5 when they reconvene for action on bills.

The calendar has lawmakers breaking again on March 12 and returning to Frankfort on March 25 and 26 to wrap up.
