SENATOR JARED CARPENTER’S LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Jared Carpenter

Jared Carpenter

Historical, life-saving legislation was achieved by the Kentucky General Assembly during the final hours of the 2015 session. Senate Bill 192, a comprehensive approach to combat the scourge of heroin addiction in Kentucky reached final passage after countless hours of bipartisan work throughout the session. This was the third consecutive year that the Senate has led the charge on an anti-heroin bill, and it was a huge relief when SB 192 was signed into law Wednesday morning by Governor Beshear.

Effective immediately because of an emergency clause, the new anti-heroin law will provide necessary tools to curb its deadly impact in our state. Penalties for dealing and trafficking increase to keep these criminals off the

McConnell Amendment to Help Adoptive Families Passes Senate

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

The United States Senate approved a bipartisan amendment offered by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that would urge the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to allow children who have been legally adopted by American citizens to leave the DRC for the United States. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) co-sponsored the amendment to the 2015 U.S. Senate Budget Resolution, which passed this morning.

On September 25, 2013, the DRC government suspended the issuance of exit permits, which has prohibited legally adopted children from departing the DRC with their adoptive parents. The McConnell-Klobuchar amendment puts the Senate on record as supporting the promotion of “the return of children who have been legally adopted from the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Legislative Update from state Rep. Rita Smart‏

Rita Smart

Rita Smart

The 2015 session of the Kentucky General Assembly is now history and there is much to report. In the House Majority, we began work in January with an ambitious agenda to address Kentucky’s growing heroin epidemic; stabilize the state’s Road Fund; and secure protective orders for dating couples in cases of domestic violence or stalking. We also sought to preserve the state’s future Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) payments which are helping diversify Kentucky’s farms; provide critical health care and offer early childhood development services throughout the Commonwealth.

In these areas and more, we proved successful and, for a short, 30-day session held in odd-numbered years, I’m thankful for all we were able to accomplish for Kentucky’s citizens in such a limited amount of time.

On the session’s last day, we reached compromise with the Senate on a comprehensive effort to provide more options for the treatment of heroin

McConnell Amendment to Fight War on Coal

Fishing Report in KY for March 28th, 2015

KYTC Minute – March 26, 2015

It recommended that rather than using a third party consulting agency to do personal air monitoring for our employees that work inside bridge containments when we’re removing lead paint. It’s obviously a hazardous, toxic substance. They have to wear personal protective equipment and they have to wear monitoring pumps to check the levels of exposure to the lead substances that they may encounter. This system utilizes in-house folks to do that — and the equipment with tremendous savings. I’m glad to see the Cabinet’s going to be able to utilize this and save money. More than anything it’s going to be more effective towards protecting our folks out in the field.

Senators McConnell, Heller, Capito and Paul Introduce Legislation to Help America’s Rural Communities

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduced legislation today to help rural communities harmed by Obama Administration policies that restrict access to rural lending opportunities. Sens. Dean Heller (R-NV), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and Rand Paul (R-KY) are original cosponsors of the Helping Expand Lending Practices in (HELP) Rural Communities Act, which would provide rural communities with better access to credit opportunities that can help grow their local economies.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) – created by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act of 2010 – permits certain rural lending practices in areas it deems “rural” or “underserved.” However, as many rural

Kentucky Utilities is having a problem with a main feed line which caused the power outage. They are working on it but still don’t know when power will be restored.

The majority of power in Berea has been restored with the exception of two areas. We are working with KU to get powered restored as quickly as possible.
