    By State Rep. Brandon Reed

    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.

    “Find a new place to live.”
    I was disgusted when I read that phrase on social media Sunday afternoon.
    I was even more disgusted by the fact that it was one of my friends who used it.
    The person was referring to the immigrants who are now, thanks to our new president, being banned from entering the United States. Approximately 500,000 of them are legal permanent residents of this country who might be banned from re-entering the country if they left, or if they’re currently abroad.

  • General Assembly gets back to work Feb. 7

    By State Rep. Brandon Reed

    As the General Assembly takes an organizational break from the 2017 regular session, we continue to focus on the issues Kentuckians elected us to address. The first week was historic for many reasons. Republicans took control of the Kentucky House of Representatives for the first time since 1921, we saw a Republican Speaker of the House gavel in for the first time in nearly 100 years, and we passed several bills during the first week keeping good on our promise to bring each of us a better Kentucky.
