Republicans leaders passed new rules codifying ways to limit debate, sparking outrage from Democrats.

And, while everyone was focused on redistricting, House Republicans released their budget proposal.

Kentucky Politics Distilled is our weekly rundown of the big news — and sometimes the odd news — happening in the state Capitol.

Jonese Franklin from WFPL joined capitol reporter Ryland Barton for this week’s edition of Kentucky Politics Distilled.

Story Highlights

  • Legislators unveiled redistricting maps and began rushing them through the lawmaking process. The plans bolster Republican seats in the legislature and Congress and make it harder for Democrats to get elected.

  • Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear delivered his State of the Commonwealth Address, calling for unity in the wake of last month’s devastating tornadoes and the ongoing pandemic.
