FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18)– The 2019 General Assembly goes into session Tuesday with pension reform still at the top of the agenda.

Legislators are challenged to try for a third time to pass pension reform legislation after a state supreme court ruling found the 2018 attempt by Republican lawmakers unconstitutional.

Following that decision, Governor Matt Bevin called a special session during the holiday season.

It ended on its second day, with no meaningful legislation passed.

Republicans maintain super-majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate.
