Senator. Katie Stine reviews Kentucky congressional week

This past week the Senate passed Senate Bill 221 that will give the speaker of the House and the president of the Senate standing to intervene in judicial proceedings when the constitutionality of any Kentucky statute or constitutional provision is challenged in court. Recently, Attorney General Jack Conway refused to defend the Kentucky constitutional provision that says that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. This bill will assure that the Senate president and House speaker can go to court to defend our laws when other constitutional officers fail to do so.

We are into the first week of March which is unbelievable. It makes us think of spring but the weather outside is telling us something a whole lot different. All morning it has been snowing. Just a nice scenic snow with not much of a wind blowing. It is a relaxing kind of snow and the flakes are clinging to the trees. The thermometer shows 18 degrees which almost seems like spring to us after all the sub-zero temperatures we have had this year. Monday morning the temperature was negative five so we like the 18 degrees this morning.
