Ky Considering Process for Counties to Unify
(2012-02-08)
(wkms) - Kentucky's House Local Government Committee is set to consider legislation establishing a process for counties to voluntarily unify. Bill sponsor Republican Adam Koenig says the measure means two or more counties could consolidate if voters approve. Unification has long been a hot topic in the 120 county Commonwealth. But local officials have been resistant to the idea. Koenig says his proposal should be acceptable because it doesn't force consolidation. © Copyright 2014, wkms
