FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — The State Legislature is out of session, but there's some noisy work going on at Frankfort's State Capitol Annex.

That is where a construction crew is building a wall between Republicans and Democrats.

According to the Courier-Journal, Senate President Robert Stivers okayed the work separating the lawmakers' offices along party lines.

Stivers told the paper that it will cost Kentuckians about $12,000, but it's worth it so people of both parties can discuss the issues without the other parties hearing it.
