By James A. Tipton, State Representative
The 2016 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly is fast approaching. The legislature will convene on Jan. 5, 2016 and the 60-day session must be completed by April 15. The primary responsibility during this session is adopting a two-year general and road fund budget going into effect on July 1, 2016. During the 2016 session, along with my fellow legislators we will also consider approximately 1,000 pieces of proposed legislation. In a typical session, only 10-15 percent of proposed bills are actually signed into law.
