General Assembly Won't Convene Today

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Despite the recent effort to get lawmakers
to reconvene in a special legislative session to pass an energy
bill, it won't happen today.

Nevertheless, House and Senate leaders say negotiators will meet
at four o'clock this afternoon concerning the bill.

Governor Fletcher has sole power to call special sessions and he
said yesterday he would not summon the lawmakers back today because
negotiations between the House and Senate have yet to produce a
final agreement on the bill.

Fletcher said he was optimistic that the legislature will work
through their issues so the session can convene soon.
