The holiday spirit is in the air, and like you, I am excited for the special days ahead. Despite the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we in the Kentucky General Assembly are working to continue legislative business in Frankfort to prepare for the upcoming 2022 Regular Session.
The fall season has arrived in the Bluegrass, and families are beginning to turn their attention towards the Thanksgiving holiday. In Frankfort, the 2021 interim period is nearing its end as lawmakers are eager to enjoy treasured time with their families this holiday season ahead of a return to the state capital on Tuesday, January 4, for the start of the 2022 legislative session.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the challenges it caused, I believe this July Fourth will be most extraordinary. Perhaps more than any other time in our lives, we appreciate the liberties and opportunities America provides. I hope that together, as proud Kentuckians, we will continue to strive for unity and peace for our country and our people. We are one nation, and one people, under God, and unitedly we will continue to make our Founding Fathers’ declaration many years ago a reality today.
The Kentucky General Assembly has wrapped up proceedings for the 2021 Regular Session and adjourned “sine die.” Our final legislative days consisted of overriding gubernatorial vetoes, finishing the state budget and approving several other measures that will impact the Commonwealth.
With the end of the 2021 Regular Session in sight, we are wrapping up legislative efforts by passing a variety of bills and finalizing the state’s annual budget. The General Assembly needs to pass most bills by Tuesday, March 16, to consider any veto overrides that may be necessary.
We continue to build on the momentum created by the Republican Majority. Important legislation has been passed to ensure the safety of our schools, provide pension relief for quasi-governmental entities and regional universities, and we continued to defend the unborn. Though we have a new governor, rest assured that the priorities of the Legislature remain the same. We will continue to champion responsible policies and work toward the betterment of the Commonwealth. The laws passed in 2020 will contribute to the well-being of our state for years to come.Meet Damon On the Issues
