FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – Kentucky lawmakers got back to work in Frankfort on Tuesday. The 2013 legislative session began at noon.
There are big changes in the Kentucky Senate. For the first time in 12 years, there is a new Senate president. Senator Robert Stivers of southeast Kentucky was elected to that position. He replaced David Williams who left to be a judge in Cumberland County.
Stivers, a Republican, already is reaching across the aisle. He is working with Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, a Democrat, to draft Senate Bill 1 which would allow Kentucky's military to vote via email.
Stivers says pension reform and implementing Medicaid are two of the top issues on his agenda.
