"With me being in the east and the speak of the house being in the east sometimes Western Kentucky doesn't get attention. That's the purpose of this week is to make sure as the Senate President with a state wide mission that Western Kentucky is going to get it's due attention," said Stivers.

Stivers is scheduled to visit Owensboro on Friday.
