Having passed "right to work," prevailing wage repeal and paycheck deception legislation at warp speed, the General Assembly's GOP-majority probably figured the rest of their union-busting measures would be slam dunks.

The Kentucky Senate Economic Development, Tourism, and Labor Committee will hear HB 296, changes to KY's Workers' Compensation law, on Monday, March 13th at 4:00 p.m. in Room 169 of the Capitol Annex.
