When the General Assembly left the Capitol late last month for its traditional veto recess – the roughly two-week period a governor has to approve or reject legislation – it was already becoming clear that the regular session’s final two days would be busy.
May is National Foster Care Month
May is National Foster Care Month, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank foster and kinship parents in our community for their hard work and dedication to families across our region. This month provides the opportunity to thank the foster families who provide homes and love to children who need them. Foster parents often become the substitute family for the youth regardless of how long they stay – be it an hour or a lifetime.
It has been a quiet two weeks at the capitol as the legislators have been away during the veto days. The session will end after the last two days, which are April 14-15. I have enjoyed seeing buds on trees and flowers starting to come out of the ground with these sunnier and warmer days. Soon we will be into Derby season, looking at summer plans and enjoying the beautiful outdoors of our state.
To the citizens of district one, a tough vote will come up this May. Remember all the things that Jackie Wicker has done for the community. He has done so much for Bradfordsville and the community center, including all kinds of things for the seniors and the school.
Traditionally, the last day of a legislative session is set aside just to consider any vetoes the governor may make. Recently, however, the General Assembly has also used the time to wrap up a few lingering issues, and this year is no different.
