FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Lawmakers are expected to return to Frankfort on Monday for a special legislation session that will be limited to passing a transportation budget and a prescription drug abuse bill.
  
Gov. Steve Beshear called lawmakers back to the Capitol for the session scheduled to start at noon.

Beshear had told reporters he is "disgusted and angry" that lawmakers ended their 2012 session late Thursday night without passing a transportation budget and a prescription drug abuse bill aimed at curbing overdose deaths in the state.

The session is expected to cost more than $60,000 a day. Beshear said he hopes lawmakers can wrap up their work by Friday. That would put the cost at more than $300,000.
