Those listed as BR are Bill Request numbers of pre-filed bills. They will eventually be assigned a House or Senate bill number.

The bad bills are listed in red.
HB 28 (BR106) - Employers, schools and the government cannot demand vaccines for a job. It will protect our freedoms. Link to bill

BR133 - Will impose term limits on our KY legislators.

BR91  - Make the Ky minimum wage $15. This will increase an already skyrocketing inflation and cause more businesses to mechanize instead of hiring young people.

BR60 and BR69 - No Critical Race Theory (CRT) in our schools. 

BR427 - Requires CRT be taught in KY public schools.

BR154 - Save women's sports act. Similar to a Texas bill that states boys can't compete in girls' sports.

HB 36 (BR208) - No KY Sales tax on guns and ammo. Link to bill

BR440 - Require School Resource Officers (SROs) be trained and armed.

BR1046 - Keep the road open around the capitol. 

HB 161 (BR1137) – Prohibit all federal, state, and local tax dollars from being used for lobbying purposes.  Link to bill

Create a new section of KRS prohibit an identified entity from enforcing, or assisting in the enforcement of, any federal law that does not exist under the laws of Kentucky and limits firearm ownership; create a Class B misdemeanor with enhancement for subsequent offenses for any government official who violates the prohibition; grant authority to the Attorney General to file a civil action in Circuit Court to enforce the prohibition; permit citizens to file complaints with the Attorney General for violations of the prohibition. Make federal agents subject to arrest for enforcing prohibition; or attempting to arrest local or state officials; provide that the Act may be cited as the Kentucky Second Amendment Preservation Act. Link to bill

Here are some bills that have not been introduced but are needed:

Eliminate daylight savings time. Keep the same time all year long. We can decide which we prefer and stick with it rather than have to change clocks twice a year, which brings confusion and hurts business and industry. The reasons we started having day lights savings time are long since past. Hawaii, Arizona and Puerto Rico have eliminated daylight savings time. 

Spread the KY Legislative Session throughout the year, and thus eliminate the need for a special session and added costs. And also allows the legislature to be in session to reign in an out of control governor. In the long session (even years), like we have now the legislature meets for 60 days, Jan - April. Instead they would meet 5 days a month, all year long. In the short session (odd years), instead of meeting for 30 days Jan - March, they would meet 5 days every other month. This would give them a chance to actually read all the bills and give us the time to contact them about the bills. The legislators would have more time at home with their families. 

Restore Parental Control Over Their Child's Education - Introduce a bill similar to Indiana House Bill 1040 authored by Representatives Prescott, Jeter, Morrison and Davis will protect children in the public schools.
