Top lawmakers not on list of those refunding state

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) The state's top two legislative leaders aren't among a growing list of lawmakers who have reimbursed the treasury for pay they received for a two-week period earlier this year when the General Assembly was in limbo.

Senate President David Williams and House Speaker Greg Stumbo haven't shown up on that list that now includes 23 lawmakers who have refunded the state more than $61,000.

Senate lawmakers who have sent in refunds include Jack Westwood, Bob Leeper, Joe Bowen, Ernie Harris, Jimmy Higdon, Paul Hornback, Tom Jensen, Vernie McGaha, John Schickel, Brandon Smith, Denise Harper Angel, Jared Carpenter, David Givens, Ken Winters, Jerry Rhodes, Dennis Parrett, R.J. Palmer II, Perry Clark and Dorsey Ridley. House lawmakers include Jim Wayne, Brent Yonts and Jeff Greer.
