  • There is still lots to learn at legislature

    With recent rain showers and storms rolling through Kentucky as cool and warm weather mix, along with getting into the heart of football season and leaves turning and beginning to fall, autumn is officially here. Along with that, we are very close to an important election day as we go to the polls to choose our next U.S. Senator as well as many local and state officials who will shape policy over the next two to four years. Again, I want to encourage you to exercise your right to vote on Nov. 4 or call your clerk about voting via absentee ballot in the case you will be out of town.

  • Judge strikes down Kentucky's election day restricted zones

     Kentucky has prohibited campaigning near polling places on primary and general election days for several years, but that ban was struck down Tuesday in a ruling by Judge William O. Bertlesman of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

    Bertlesman ruled that the law was unconstitutional and issued an injunction barring the state from enforcing the law. While noting a Supreme Court decision that upheld a 100-foot ban as acceptable to prevent things like voter intimidation, he concluded that the 300-feet ban was too much.
