Those issues and others will be on tap when restive lawmakers convene Tuesday in regular session. Majority Republicans are mad at a judiciary that struck down last year's pension bill. But they may be madder at Gov. Matt Bevin, who blasted them last week in a press release that accused them of “weak” and “hollow” excuses for adjourning a sudden special session he called last month to try to pass a pension bill.
