Legislative Decision On Reconvening Not Made

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky lawmakers squabbled yesterday,
but didn't say if they will reconvene Monday. They were apparently
ready to pass an energy bill on Monday, but Governor Fletcher has
said he wants the House and Senate to agree on a bill before he
calls the session.
Republican Senate President David Williams and House Democratic
Leader Rocky Adkins have expressed uncertainty that negotiating
teams for the two chambers will meet tomorrow and that the session
will start Monday.
Adkins says he's not sure if enough House negotiators could
attend a meeting tomorrow. Adkins and Williams are among the many
legislators who were in Boston most of this week for the convention
of the National Conference of State Legislatures.
