Ky. Legislature Cancels Friday Session As Winter Storm Nears

Josh James

The Kentucky state legislature has cancelled its Friday session because of the threat of winter weather.  The National Weather Service is predicting as much as 14 inches of snow could fall on Kentucky's capital city on Friday. The service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the entire state.

The House of Representatives and the Senate both met on Thursday. The two legislative bodies have passed some bills but have delayed work on major legislation until after Republican Gov. Matt Bevin delivers his first budget address on Tuesday.

Tuesday is also the deadline for candidates to file for the fall elections. Both legislative chambers are scheduled to reconvene at 4 p.m. Monday.
