News Outlook January 21, 2021 11 COMMUNITY SENATIIII BIIIIIIIIBII STIIIIM'S lEflISlIITIIIE III’IIIITE Week 2 of the 2021 Legis- lative Session The Kentucky General Assembly is making the most of the 30-day legisla- tive session. In the first eight days back in Frank- fort, lawmakers have al- ready delivered seven bills to the governor’s desk. I am happy to report that we are moVing forward in deliberation, but with pur- pose. . The past ten months have been challenging for ~ all of us. Anxieties sur- rounding the COVID-19 pandemic have extended beyond just the dangerous health risk the virus poses to the vulnerable to indi- rect consequences affect- ing students, businesses, and mental health; side effects of government ac- tions. The passage of prior- ity House and Senate bills shows the legislature’s commitment to being a co-equal branch of govern- ment and ensuring the rep- resentative branch of state government has a seat at the table where life-altering decisions are considered. Senate Bill 1 (SB 1)— This bill better defines ex- ecutive authOrity during a state of emergency. It brings the representative branch of government to the table to be a voice for the communities its mem- bers represent. The bill will require legislative au- thorization before the gov- ernor can extend an execu- tive order beyond 30 days if the order places restric- tions on various public and private entities. The same requirement would exist for emergency executive orders. Similarly, it would require mutual agreement between the governor and the attorney general to suspend state statute dur— ing a state of emergency. Taking a less arbitrary and more targeted approach to addressing a state of emer- gency, SBl would allow 10- cal officials to request an extension of executive or— ders only for their area and only for the amount of time they ask. SB 2—For far too long, governors and their admin- istrations have been able to blur the lines between exec- utive and legislative branch authorities by making law through the use and abuse of the emergency regulato- ry process. SB 2 enhances this process’s legislative and public oversight by re- quiring an expedited public hearing and written com- ment period and allowing a legislative committee to review, amend, or find an emergency regulation de- ficient. House Bill (HB) 1 Pro- vides clarity and reas- surances amid a state of emergency for businesses, schools, parents, teachers, students, and religious in- stitutions that they may remain open and opera- tional if they follow a com- prehensive operating plan detailing how they plan to adhere to Centers for Dis- ease Control and Preven- tion (CDC) guidelines—or state guidelines—which- ever is least restrictive. Other bills that have reached the governor’s desk are two pro-er mea- sures. SB 9, the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which the legislature v passed last year before the governor vetoed it, has been sent to him again. Un- fortunately, last year‘ s veto came after the legislative veto override period, and lawmakers could not over- ride it. The bill ensures that a baby born-alive in any cir- cumstance receives lifesav- ing care. v HB Z—Gives Kentucky’s Attorney General the au- thority to seek an injunc- tion and civil or criminal penalties for violations of statutes and administrative regulations guiding the practice of abortion. Cur- rent law only allows the Attorney General to take action if the Cabinet for Health and Family Servic- es secretary requests that he or she intervene. I and other General As- sembly members, who value the sanctity of hu- man life, are eager to over- ride any vetoes the gover- nor chooses to issue. Last week, Kentucky Right to Life held a pro-life rally alongside the attorney gen- eral and lawmakers restat- ing commitment to defend- ing these pro-life bills in the court system. Additional bills that made full passage this past week include HB 3, which establishes that challenges to the constitutionality of state statutes, executive orders, administrative regulations, or cabinet or- ders shall be filed in the county of the plaintiff’s residence. Currently, all suits filed against the state go through the Franklin Circuit Court and before a limited number of potential judges, essentially creating a “super circuit” V HB 5 would improve oversight of the reorga- nization of state boards. Governors have used these boards to fulfill political agendas and favors in the past In fact, over the last five administrations, there have been over 445 reorga- nizations of state agencies, cabinets, or boards. The bill would require execu- tive branch and board reor- ganizations to have a vote of the General Assembly and it refines gubernatorial authority when the legisla- ture is not in session. The Constitution of Ken-, tucky requires that the General Assembly adjourn following the first part of the session. Wednesday, January 13, was our final day before adjourning in compliance with that con- stitutional requirement. The legislature will recon- vene for the second part of the session on Tuesday, February 2. Before ad— journing, the House and Senate have each submit- ted their respective budget bill. With the two chambers not concurring on the bills, the next step in the process is for appointed members of each chamber to come together in a conference committee to finalize an agreement to be voted on and sent to the governor. Budget bills include HB 192, the executive branch' budget; HB 193, the trans- portation budget; HB 194, the legislative branch bud- get; and HB 195, the judi- cial branch budget. You can access each of these bills at legislature.ky.gov. I am in the process of scheduling various stops across the 21st District in the next few weeks. I am excited to interact with constituents. At this time, two are two “legislative cof- fee” events scheduled, and plans for stops in all other counties are in develop- ment A legislative coffee will take place in laurel County on Tuesday, January 19 from 8 am. to 9 am. at the London Community Center at 529 South Main Street in London. I am excited to have Senate Transporta- tion Committee Chairman, Senator Jimmy Higdon, join me. I want to thank the London-Laurel County Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring this event. V Additionally, I will be visiting Jackson County on Thursday, January 28 start- ing at 8:30 am. in the up- stairs courtroom of the old Courthouse at 100 Main Street in McKee. I look forward to Visit- ing each county to provide an in-person update on the work my fellow lawmakers and I are doing in Frank- fort. Stay tuned to my leg- islative updates and your local newspaper for the an- nouncement of additional plans. , It is a true honor to rep- resent Laurel, Jackson, Estill, Powell, Menifee, and Bath Counties in the Kentucky State Senate.
