Kentucky lawmakers are set to reconvene Monday to consider unfinished business.

They have two more days of work before ending the 2021 session.

Republicans are poised to take up vetoes by the Democratic governor on everything from scholarship tax credits to the governor's ability to fill any vacant U.S. Senate seat.

Bills awaiting final votes include proposals to curb no-knock police warrants, relax early voting rules and shield businesses from pandemic-related lawsuits.

A showdown is likely on Gov. Andy Beshear’s rejection of a bill to allow a form of scholarship tax credits to gain a foothold in Kentucky to pay for private school tuition.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
