  • Senate works swiftly during short session

    A wide array of bills were heard in committees and voted out of the Senate in a busy and fast-paced third week of the 2017 session. Because this year’s 30-day meeting of the Kentucky General Assembly is considered a “short session,” we are focusing on maximizing our time here in Frankfort.

    The people’s work continues in the General Assembly as a busy third week of the regular session comes to a close.

I don’t worry about his academic progress. I know he’ll continue to excel. His father and I somehow hit the jackpot with Owen. We never have to nag him to do his homework or study for tests. He has excelled in every subject, although his handwriting could use some work. (Who am I kidding? I have zero room to talk in that department).

    The General Assembly returned to Frankfort this week after a brief organizational break, and the week has been filled with legislative meetings as well as the daily session.
