  • "The state House passed a two-year $17.1 billion budget Wednesday that included cuts to most state agencies, no new taxes and no raises for state workers. The House voted 94-4 to pass the measure. The budget now heads to the Senate, where leaders hope to pass it by Friday when legislators anticipate the special session will conclude." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "The House on Wednesday killed a bill aimed at helping to promote one of Kentucky's signature industries, the bourbon industry. House Bill 6 would have allowed Kentucky's bourbon distillers to set up sampling booths at conventions and special events, including the World Equestrian Games in Lexington in September." [Courier-Journal]
