Week 12 of the 2022 Legislative Session

The final day of the 2022 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly is on the horizon, which means legislative activity is taking place at a rapid pace. We are required by the constitution to be finished by April 14.  Week 12 of this year’s session included busy committee agendas and important legislation making final passage through the legislative process.

Week 11 of the 2022 Legislative Session

Week 11 of the 2022 regular session was unique in that the General Assembly gaveled in for a historic day of session at the Old State Capitol. If you have never toured it, I highly recommend you go. The Old Kentucky State Capitol was the third statehouse, built in 1830 following devastating fires in the previous two. It was designed by native architect Gideon Shryock in the classical Greek Revival style, modeled after the Temple of Minerva and used until 1910 when the current Capitol was built.  It is a beautiful building, steeped in history and rich with artifacts of days gone by.

Week 10 of the 2022 Legislative Session

As time springs forward, so too has the 2022 biennial state budget as various state budget bills--executive, legislative and judicial--crossed significant milestones in week 10.

Week 9 of the 2022 Legislative Session

Two-thirds of the 2022 legislative session is behind us after crossing the 40-day mark of the 60-day session. What arguably has been a marathon up to this point will become a sprint as budget negotiations draw near.

Week 8 of the 2022 Legislative Session

With each passing day of session, you can feel legislative efforts intensifying as lawmakers seek to enact bills important to them and beneficial to their constituents. Budget review continues in the state Senate, and in week eight of session we introduced and passed significant bills to help people across the Commonwealth.

Week 7 of the 2022 Legislative Session

We have officially crossed the halfway point of the 2022 60-day Regular Session. Week 7 of the session included a lot of legislative activity as consequential bills were introduced and more moved through the process. I want to update you on three significant matters: motor vehicle taxes, legislation introduced to address the state's nursing shortage, and the Teaching America's Principles Act, which cleared the Senate Education Committee on Thursday.
