FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Candidates for director of the Kentucky Legislative Research Commission have undergone interviews in Frankfort, but there’s been no decision on a new leader.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/1UsoXh4 ) says legislative leaders conducted interviews behind closed doors Wednesday. Republican Senate President Robert Stivers of Manchester and Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo of Prestonsburg declined to identify any of the candidates afterward.

Stivers and Stumbo say they plan to call a special meeting of legislative leaders to hire someone for the position. Legislative leaders hope to have someone in the position by Oct. 1. The General Assembly meets starting in January.

The LRC director oversees nonpartisan support staff for state lawmakers.

The interim LRC director, Marcia Seiler of Louisville, retired at the end of July.
