KY Repugs Showing Some Leg on Minimum Wage, But It's Just a Tease

The only way the Kentucky senate would pass a minimum wage bill is if it lowered the minimum wage.  Or if they thought it was the only thing that would guarantee a repug takeover of the state House this fall.

Bruce Schreiner at the AP:

Kentucky Senate President Robert Stivers said Friday there's a "real possibility" the Republican-led Senate will pass some form of a minimum wage bill, breathing new life into a measure that's a top priority of his Democratic counterpart in the House.

Stivers, R-Manchester, told reporters that senators are working on the House-passed measure but he didn't provide details about possible changes.
