The Kentucky General Assembly kicks off the 2019 session today and it promises to be a challenging session. Fixing the state's broken pension system is a priority. So is modernizing our tax system. What makes it most interesting is the political intrigue since it's an election year where the governor will be on the ballot. As challenging as the session may be, remember that all of governing is not all on the government. This is because we the people have significant say in what goes on in Frankfort. We can attend committee meetings, make phone calls and meet with our legislators in person. Another thing we can do is to pray for our leaders to make good decisions. Prayer is powerful. In fact, considering the challenges, it may be the most important thing we can do for our state.
