General Assembly Special Session Possible
By Tony McVeigh
Frankfort, KY – A special session of the Kentucky General Assembly is possible before Christmas. Kentucky Public Radio's Tony McVeigh reports.
The Kentucky Gazette in Frankfort is reporting Gov. Steve Beshear may call a special session if Kentucky can land a proposed Harley-Davidson plant.
The Milwaukee-based motorcycle company is considering relocating a manufacturing facility in York, Pennsylvania, to Shelbyville.
The Gazette says the Harley-Davidson board meets December 1st and if it approves the relocation, Kentucky lawmakers would need to sign-off on a state economic incentives package.
The newspaper says Gov. Beshear has told legislative leaders to keep the week of December 14th open.
The governor's office confirms talks with Harley-Davidson continue, and says if a special session should become necessary, the economic incentives package would be the only item on the agenda.
