Legislators File Two More KLC Initiatives

Two more Kentucky League of Cities initiatives are on the move at the Capitol. Representative Deanna Frazier Gordon (R-Richmond) and Senator Robby Mills (R-Henderson) each filed bills in their chamber during Monday’s session of the General Assembly.

Frazier Gordon filed House Bill 351. The measure allows a local government with lost, damaged, or destroyed records to submit an affidavit when a state agency requires a copy of the document. House Bill 351 creates a process for local governments to follow and establishes when they could not use the affidavit.

Mills introduced Senate Bill 106. The legislation establishes a way for cities that do not collect funds or have elected officials to dissolve through an administrative process instead of going through the courts.

Those bills and two other KLC initiatives are poised for committee hearings as soon as Wednesday, including House Bill 307. That KLC initiative, sponsored by Representative Bart Rowland (R-Tompkinsville), establishes permissible investments for liability and workers’ compensation self-insurance groups.

A House committee could also hear House Bill 335 on Wednesday. Representative Adam Bowling (R-Middlesboro) filed the KLC initiative requiring the governor to make organizational appointments to the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council (KLEC) and the Advisory Council for Recovery Ready Communities from a list of three candidates that organizations provide him.
