The first week of the 2017 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly wrapped up on Saturday with the passage of several bills.  HB 162 was filed by House Education Committee Chairman Bam Carney and SB 102 was filed by Senator Ralph Alvarado.  SB 102 was co-sponsored by Senate Education Committee Chairman Mike Wilson and Senator Max Wise. Though many issues are of importance to us as Catholics, I urge you to support these two bills that would help provide families with more options when it comes to their children’s education, regardless of their income or ZIP Code.

During the recess, please be sure to do the following:

  1. Thank the primary sponsors and co-sponsors mentioned above for their leadership on this issue;
  2. Encourage your state legislators to support and prioritize this legislation;
  3. Inform your friends and neighbors of this opportunity.

You can reach state legislators by calling the Legislative Message Line at 1-800-372-7181 (1-866-840-6574 for Spanish).  If you do not know your state legislators, the operator on the line will assist you in getting the message to the correct representative and senator.

These proposals will likely be considered by the Kentucky General Assembly during the month of February.  Please sign-up for our Faithful Citizen Advocate email list in order to stay up-to-date on this issue and invite others to do so as well.
