We are approaching the end of this year’s session, with only three days remaining on the legislative calendar. While we focused on the bills and resolutions on our agenda, we are also aware that last week Kentuckians across the state saw tragedies, including the deadly coal mine accident in Harlan County and a bomb scare at the Jewish Community Center in Louisville. Events like these always put into perspective how the policies we enact in Frankfort have a real impact on Kentuckians and are never far from my mind when I take a vote on behalf of the 18th District.
While many bills are still up for consideration, only a few will make it through the process to become law. Under the current legislative calendar, I will join fellow legislators for two days this week, then we will return on April 13 to deal with any unfinished business. The final two days are always reserved to give us time to consider any vetoes that a Governor might issue on bills we have passed.
