Jeff Hoover Asks Greg Stumbo To Call House Back To Override Steve Beshear's Vetos. House Republicans "GOT HAD" In "Special" Session, Folks!

House Republican Leader Jeff Hoover calls on speaker to bring lawmakers back for final day

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Republican Jeff Hoover is calling on House Speaker Greg Stumbo to reconvene lawmakers on April 6 to override some of Gov. Steve Beshear's vetoes of provisions in a Medicaid budget bill.

Hoover, the House minority floor leader, said in a statement Monday that Republican lawmakers are concerned about "numerous items" the governor vetoed.

That includes language that would stop furloughs of state employees, reduce personal service contracts and limit debt restructuring in the general and road funds.

Hoover said Beshear had "snubbed his nose" at a bipartisan group of lawmakers who passed the Medicaid budget fix last week and that he should be held accountable.

Editor's comment: no matter if you are a Republican or a Democrat, you've got to ADMIRE how House Democrats outmaneuvered their Republican colleagues over the Medicaid fix during the "special" session.

That move should make any political master tactician very proud!
