General assembly makes COVID-19 focus of Interim Session

By Noah Lucas

Frankfort, KY - The 2020 General Assembly's Interim Joint Committees will make issues related to COVID-19 the top focus of its interim session meeting agendas. Each of the committees meeting the week of June 1-5 have placed at least one topic related to COVID-19 on its respective agenda.

"Due to the unprecedented environment in which we find ourselves, the legislature finds it necessary to approach this year's interim as an essential component for Kentucky's COVID-19 recovery plans," Senate President Robert Stivers and House Speaker David Osborne said. "The General Assembly reaffirmed its commitment to the Commonwealth earlier this year by restructuring its session schedule to focus on providing Kentuckians as much relief as possible in light of the effects of the pandemic. With COVID-19 as the focal point of the interim schedule, we will ensure that we are thoroughly prepared to remedy any further fallout when we are once again in regular session and able to pass new legislation."

As Kentucky grapples with the effects of the pandemic, the General Assembly will continue to monitor and address any additional topics related to COVID-19 as the interim session progresses.
