Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - House Speaker Greg Stumbo says he prefers convening a special legislative session this year to redraw
Kentucky's legislative boundaries to match population shifts over
the past decade.
But Stumbo told reporters Tuesday that an agreement would have
to be reached beforehand with Senate leaders. Stumbo says he hasn't met with Senate President David Williams about redistricting plans.
Gov. Steve Beshear has said in the past he would be open to a
special session if lawmakers have an agreement in hand to assure a
speedy conclusion. Special sessions cost taxpayers more than
$60,000 a day.
Kentucky lawmakers begin their regular session in early January
and could take up redistricting then.
Under one scenario laid out by Stumbo, Owensboro would move to
the 1st Congressional District and Ashland to the 5th District.
