During the adjournment, I have had a great time visiting many of our schools and teaching about our legislative process and government.

  • Just step outside

    The argument for enacting an indoor smoke-free law in Kentucky is simple: Everyone has the right to breathe smoke-free air.
    I would hope even smokers would agree.
