Could the 30-day 2011 General Assembly session be shortened by six days?
That is the idea recently brought up by Senate Republicans after Gov. Steve Beshear’s State of the Commonwealth address.
The legislative session began Jan. 4 and recessed Jan. 7 before starting again Feb. 1 through March 22.
By eliminating six days of legislative pay, the state would save almost $400,000.
However, local legislators, Rep. Royce Adams, D-Dry Ridge, and Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, disagree about cutting the session short.
