A Kentucky Senate committee has passed a bill that would crack down on habitual drunk drivers.

The bill would double the five-year “look-back period” for driving under the influence, meaning someone convicted of the charge multiple times in 10 years would face increased penalties.

McCracken’s County’s Judge Executive has expressed his support for the county school district’s busing of private school students.

According to a Lexington Herald Leader article, state financial records show that Kentucky spent nearly $18 million to pay for busing at private, mostly religious schools, in two dozen counties over the last six years. 

  A bill has been pre-filed in the Kentucky legislature that would permit the founding of “benefit corporations.” Lexington Representative Kelly Flood is pushing the legislation to address shortcomings in modern day capitalism.
