KENTUCKY (WFIE) - The Kentucky General Assembly will start day three of their special session Thursday morning.

We could see more action on an education bill that deals with COVID in Kentucky.

One education bill passed a Senate committee on Wednesday.

That bill takes away mask mandates for students and staff in schools across the state.

Republican Senator Max Wise said the committee wanted to give more control back to local districts.

However, there is a new plan for NTI days in that bill.

If passed, school districts would have 20 remote learning days and 10 NTI days to use.

This bill along with another education bill in the House could be called for votes Thursday.

Another bill Kentucky lawmakers made moves on was a bill to tap into the state’s budget reserve fund.

That would be to offer incentives in hopes to help increase economic development projects.
