State Senate Reconvenes

by Tony McVeigh on April 6, 2011

As expected, the Kentucky Senate reconvened the special session on Medicaid. But not much has happened yet.

Senate President David Williams gaveled the session to order, and 27 members recorded their presence. A couple of resolutions were read, and then Senate Republicans went behind closed doors to caucus, where they remain.

Democratic Senatir Walter Blevins is still trying to figure out why the Senate’s even meeting.

“It’s a waste of time. I’d rather be home working, trying to make a living and trying to work on the problems of the people I represent. Today, we’re not going to be doing anything. It’s just all political theater,” he says. “It’s just all politics.”

The House officially went home March 24th and did not return for what the Senate is calling a veto override day. But no vetoes can be overridden, because overrides require majority votes in both chambers.
