FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky’s House of Representatives has adjourned a special session called by the governor without passing a pension bill.

Republican Gov. Matt Bevin called lawmakers back to Frankfort on Monday after the state Supreme Court struck down a pension law passed earlier this year.

On Tuesday, Acting GOP House Speaker David Osborne said the issues are too complicated to resolve in a five-day session, and the House adjourned.
