The No. 1 priority for the Kentucky House in 2013 is set: Tackling recommendations from a recent report that found that special tax districts have big budgets and little oversight.

Kentucky Senate President David Williams says he had no idea what trouble his former gubernatorial running mate Richie Farmer was causing as agriculture commissioner.

State Auditor Adam Edelen says the first phase of a state audit found problems with reviews of bridge inspection reports conducted by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. Of 40 reports tested by auditors, 8 were not reviewed. KYTC spokesman Chuck Wolfe says most of the un-reviewed reports came from an eastern Kentucky district, where personnel shortages had led to a buildup of pending reviews.
