Part II of 30-day legislative session begins Tuesday

Part two of Kentucky’s “short” 30-day session is set to convene this coming Tuesday, February 7th.

Lawmakers have until February 21 to introduce new bills in the Senate and until February 22 to introduce new bills in the House. The chambers are scheduled to adjourn sine die on March 30.

Ever since an amendment to the state constitution in 2000, the General Assembly has met in short sessions during odd-numbered years. The proceedings were intended to bridge the gap between longer, 60-day sessions in even-numbered years.

Citizens can track the action through the Legislative Record webpage, which allows users to follow a bill’s progression through the chambers.

Interested parties can also share their views on issues with lawmakers by calling the General Assembly’s toll-free message line at 1-800-372-7181.
