David Williams: An Actual Leader

I never compliment Democrats. With that stated, David Williams deserves praise. Imagine; he is concerned with passing legislation and improving Kentucky.

From Louisville Courier-Journal:

Senate President David Williams has sent all members of the legislature a letter asking them to return to Frankfort on Friday to work out a compromise on the Senate’s pension-reform proposal.

The Democratic-controlled House and Republican-controlled Senate have been at an impasse over the proposal, as well as on two spending bills. Lawmakers are set to return Monday for the final two days of the 30-day session. In the letter, addressed to House Speaker Jody Richards and copied to all members of the House and Senate, Williams said he and Senate Minority Floor Leader Ed Worley would be available Friday afternoon to discuss the plan.

Williams, R-Burkesville, said he also is prepared to meet through the weekend to allow a conference committee to produce a report for consideration by both chambers Monday. The Senate has proposed borrowing $800 million through bonds to stabilize the state-employee and teacher pension systems and cut benefits for future state employees. House leaders have said they are willing to float the bonds but want more time to study reductions in future benefits.
