FRANKFORT — Gov. Matt Bevin's pension bill rolled through a friendly committee Tuesday morning and is now teed up for final passage on Wednesday.

The Senate State and Local Government Committee approved the bill intended to give relief from soaring pension costs to regional universities and scores of smaller quasi-governmental groups on a party-line vote of 8-3, with all Republicans voting yes and all Democrats voting no.

The Associated Press is reporting that Matt Bevin is in Colorado after calling a special session that is costing Kentucky taxpayers $66,000 a day.
