The 2017 regular session of the Kentucky General Assembly convened on January 3. For the first time in state history, Republicans are in control of the Kentucky House, Senate and governorship. 

In less than a week the legislature passed, and Governor Matt Bevin signed, seven bills into law. Now on break, the General Assembly will reconvene on February 7.

Joining us to discuss the current session of the General Assembly are Kentucky Representative Arnold Simpson, a Democrat representing House District 65;  Republican Representative Adam Koenig of House District 69; and Kentucky Public Radio Capital Bureau Chief Ryland Barton.

The next Northern Kentucky Forum, "The 2017 Kentucky General Assembly: What to Expect," will take place Thursday, January 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Campbell County Fiscal Court in Newport. For more information and registration, click here.

The Northern Kentucky Forum is a partnership of the NKU Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement, Skyward and Legacy.
