Lawmakers talk bipartisanship

After a hard-fought race for the governor’s seat, Democrat Andy Beshear emerged victorious last month, beating Republican Matt Bevin. Beshear could face a challenge in that both the House and Senate are Republican-controlled. However, local members of the House are saying that they are hopeful that bipartisanship will rule the day when they convene for the 2020 General Assembly in just over a month. 93rd Dist. state Rep. Chris Harris is one of the five House Democratic legislators and the sole legislator from the mountains of Eastern Kentucky to serve on Gov.-elect Beshear’s transition team. Harris is the legislator on the committee reviewing the state’s Transportation Cabinet.
