    This first bad bill that made it through the Kentucky General Assembly was HB 74. We send three alerts on this bill. Hold your State legislators accountable for creating a pawn shop registration/database this May and November.

  2. Clint says:

    SB 4 is in the State House Rules Committee with two legislative session days left. This bill we support, but we were divided. This bill moves Statewide elections in the Commonwealth to Presidential years starting in 2024.

  3. Clint says:

    HB 609 which would have raised the Commonwealth’s gasoline tax ten cents per gallon seems dead. This is great news, but have to watch closely the final two legislative session days.

  4. Clint says:

    HB 95 Charges 4% property taxes without a vote related to fire departments. This also bill is first includes .15 per 100.00 proposed private property tax increase. It is in the State Senate Revenue and Apprioriations Committee. It needs to be watch very intently for late movement. Take Back Kentucky continues to oppose this action.

    SB 7: This bill we opposed creating a rare disease advisory council was vetoed on April 2 by Governor Bevin. Sadly, the votes exist to override.

    HB 36: This is the constitutional carry bill, but was never heard in committee. We never tried to promote the bill this session.

    HB 189: This is a very anti secondment bill that never head a chance.

    HB 178: This bill allowing DNA to be collected by law enforcement never saw the light of day. Representative Robert Benvenuti III (R) should be opposed for re-election for supporting this horrid bill.

    HB 52: This is the requiring seventh graders to wear bicycle helmets gratefully stalled in the Kentucky State Senate.

    Last, but not least: HB 263-A good bills signed by Governor Bevin.
