Governor, AG clash over top priority for upcoming Kentucky legislature session

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky's governor and attorney general have different opinions on what the top priority should be for the upcoming Kentucky General Assembly.

Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear said on Tuesday that the drug epidemic is the state's single greatest problem. He wants lawmakers to focus on that when the legislative session begins next month.

Republican Governor Matt Bevin says fixing the state's public pension system will be the top priority.

Republicans will control both the Kentucky House and the Kentucky Senate for the first time in nearly a century.

Beshear and Governor Bevin have feuded multiple times over the last year.
