State Legislature

Special Session Recap

Back on my June 23 entry I mentioned three states that called special legislative sessions; Kentucky, Virginia and Nevada .   Here is a quick update:

Kentucky's pension-reform bill was signed into law during the special session.  Click HERE for a list of news stories that provide a chronology.

In Virginia, Governor Kaine's special session to get transportation funding was not successful.  The bill would have imposed new statewide taxes for highway maintenance and regional taxes in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads to address pressing transportation challenges in those high traffic areas.  High gas prices are partially to blame for the bill's failure.  Click HERE for an article that gives a detailed postmortem.

The Nevada legislature met for less than 12 hours and passed a 3.3% ($106 million) budget cut to assuage deficit concerns.  Cuts were made to numerous state agency operating budgets.
