Minimum wage hike a priority in House

Raising Kentucky's minimum wage to $10.10 an hour will be the top priority of House Democrats in the legislative session that starts Tuesday, House Speaker Greg Stumbo said Friday. He also is mulling a possible constitutional amendment that would ask voters to approve raising the state's 6-cent sales tax by a penny to provide more money for education.
