A Democratic lawmaker from Louisville has again refused to take pay for time he spent in Frankfort for a week-long special legislative session.
Wayne refunded the state $1,454 on Sept. 24 for the week lawmakers spent in Frankfort in August to redraw lines around legislative districts. He was the only one of Kentucky's 138 lawmakers to provide a refund, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press under the Open Records Act.
Kentucky lawmakers have routinely met in special session in recent years to complete unfinished tasks at a cost of more than $300,000 a week.
