The House and Senate of the Commonwealth of Kentucky make laws that impact every citizen of the Commonwealth. Called the Kentucky Legislature or under the Kentucky Constitution, the Kentucky General Assembly, bills (proposed laws) must first make it out of its assigned Committee, have a floor vote in the Chamber whose Committee passed the bill, and them move to the other Chamber for consideration. Most laws must be signed by the Governor/Commander-in-Chief of the Commonwealth prior to becoming law.
Section IV of the Kentucky Constitution is perhaps the most important:
All power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority and instituted for their peace, safety, happiness and the protection of property. For the advancement of these ends, they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may deem proper.
The Kentucky Legislature meets yearly with the Kentucky Equality Federation and the Federation Alliance supporting or fighting bills (proposed legislation) and we need your help! Citizen participation is critical to our success or failure; though your elected senators and representatives at Kentucky Capitol in Frankfort, Kentucky listen to us, you are the voters who can remove them from office! Please, get involved in your government today!
Action alerts, or proposed legislation the Federation Alliance is fighting or supporting will be listed below when the Kentucky Legislature is in session. Please follow the instructions for each bill. To get continuous updates, please subscribe to our email list.
The Kentucky Legislature will resume session in January 2017.
This page will be updated at that time.
