FRANKFORT – A schedule for the Kentucky General Assembly’s 2014 session was approved this week by legislative leaders.
The session is scheduled to convene on Jan. 7 and adjourn April 15. It is expected to last 60 working days – the maximum allowed by the state constitution in even-numbered years.
Legislators will not meet in session on Jan. 20 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day or on Feb. 17 in observance of Presidents’ Day.
The veto recess – the period of time in which lawmakers return to their home districts to await possible gubernatorial vetoes of legislation – will last from April 1-11. Lawmakers will return to the Capitol on April 14 and 15 for the final two days of the session.
