Week in review

February 23, 2017

Last week in Frankfort was a blur of productive activity! From speaking to the Small Business Caucus at their breakfast in the Governor’s Mansion, to presenting my drone bill (HB 291) with bipartisan support from a multitude of stakeholders and gratefully, unanimous bipartisan passage by my committee colleagues, there just weren’t enough hours in the day. The week also saw the passage through Judiciary Committee of HB 93, my bill providing enhanced penalties for assaulting our K9 partners of law enforcement who are the front line protection for our officers. Special thanks to Sheriff Chuck Korzenborn, Deputy Terry with Shadow, and Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders, as well as Doug Morgan, President of the Houndsman Association for their testimony on this bill. We missed having Senator Wil Schroder at the table, due to a schedule conflict, but appreciate and recognize his work and filing of this bill on the Senate level in years past.

This week also brought visits from our Kenton County and Boone County Republican Women’s Clubs, our elected clerks, judges, PVA’s, Judge Executives, Sheriffs, Deputies, and County and Commonwealth Attorneys, not to mention a whole host of advocacy groups such as those representing public libraries, children, and home builders.

I also have the distinction (not sure if that is good or bad!) of filing the last bill of the session (photo of me in blue in front of clerk’s desk).  16807596_1383921194993115_3088064387204832100_n 16649215_1383921038326464_8016068271380834176_n 16832077_1383921034993131_4283842499204256326_n
