First week of 2023 session contains some predictable moments and at least one bizarre off-script scene; proving again 'Politics - the damnedest in Kentucky'

Josh James

The first four legislative days of the thirty-day session are in the books and lawmakers in Frankfort will now take a break before coming back next month. What was the first week of January like for a reporter covering state government? Laura Cullen Glasscock, the editor and publisher of the Frankfort-based Kentucky Gazette joins Alan Lytle for the first edition of Capitol Chat for 2023. They talk about major legislative priorities for the GOP dominated General Assembly, recap Governor Andy Beshear's annual State of the Commonwealth address, and discuss the bizarre way in which former Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin let us all know he's not running for the office this year.

Laura Cullen Glasscock is editor and publisher of the Kentucky Gazette:
