The 60-day session of Kentucky’s General Assembly will begin January 4, 2022, and adjourn on April 14.
State lawmakers finalized the regular session calendar, including the maximum number of days allowed under the state constitution in even-numbered years. The typical budget-year cycle will include a 10-day veto recess from March 31 through April 12. The governor has 10 days to sign or veto legislation presented to him.
Legislators will return to Frankfort on April 13 and 14 for the final two days of the session. Leaders set aside these days to override gubernatorial vetoes, although the chambers could consider other legislation as well. However, any vetoes issued on legislation passed on these days cannot be overridden.
February 28 is the deadline to introduce bills in the House, while March 2 is the final day to introduce bills in the Senate.
The General Assembly will not meet on January 17 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day or on February 21, Presidents’ Day.
