constitutional amendments

Proposed amendments to the Kentucky constitution that would move elections for statewide officers to even-numbered years and grant the General Assembly broad powers to review executive branch regulations are moving forward in the House.

The office of constable, which is established by Kentucky’s state constitution, is again under scrutiny.  Earlier attempts to eliminate the office have failed.  However, critics this year are taking a different approach.

Tennessee’s Senate is expected to vote on two constitutional amendments today. One would prohibit any state or local taxation of payroll or earned personal income, and the other would allow the governor to appoint appellate judges, subject to legislative confirmation.
