  • House move averts Medicaid shortfall

    During the legislative session that ended earlier this month, Kentuckians saw a textbook example of what positive things can happen when both parties in the General Assembly come together and work toward the Commonwealth’s greater good.

    The end result was a landmark law that stands as the biggest change to our criminal code since it was overhauled in the mid-1970s. It showed just how effective the legislative process could be when everyone has a seat at the table and a desire to do something truly meaningful.

  • Medicaid funding must be resolved

    Last fall, when the General Assembly finalized the calendar for the 2011 Regular Session, this past week was scheduled to be one of the quietest of the year.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for attending the Carroll County Animal Support Inc. chili supper fundraiser held at the American Legion Hall  March 5. It was a well attended event. We had some good chili and desserts. We also had some very nice baskets for our silent auction.

  • Corrections bill passes; state Medicaid fix fails as session wraps up

    The 2011 General Assembly Session wrapped up March 9 with both a success story and a disappointment. 

    The Senate passed House Bill 463, a landmark bill that was the result of a long, thoughtful, and bipartisan study of the spiraling costs of corrections. This is the first serious revision to our penal code in more than 30 years.

    The nationally recognized Pew Center brought both local and state authorities together to recommend several provisions to improve public safety while lowering correctional costs and the state crime rate.
