CHARLESTON - The Special Session brought budget revisions to the table on Tuesday in the State Senate.

The Governor's call for a Special Session requires the Senate to be in attendance to work on specified areas of this year's budget. A few parts of the Courtesy Patrol Bill and Minimum Wage are being analyzed and changed to better suit citizens. Fayette County Senator William Laird said this process is more to appropriate and clean up some language than make major changes.

"Unfinished business. We had to make some additional appropriations for the upcoming fiscal year budget so basically it was just finishing up some unfinished business from the regular session that coincides with our interim process,” said Laird.

Laird said these changes are not major and the Special Session should be finishing up before the week is over.
