Gambling Won't Be Part Of Legislative Session

After three years of heated debate over gambling, Kentucky lawmakers will get a reprieve in the upcoming legislative session. House speaker Greg Stumbo says, when the legislative session begins in Frankfort Tuesday, proposals to legalize slots at horse tracks or to allow casinos won't get a hearing because it has no chance of passing. Scores of other bills have already been drafted and are ready to be introduced.
Among the high-profile proposals is one that would allow Kentuckians to carry concealed weapons without first obtaining government-required permits. Another would require pregnant women to undergo ultrasounds before having abortions so they could see images from inside their wombs.

State Representative Mike Harmon, a Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, is proposing the measure that would eliminate the need for concealed weapon permits, insisting that all law-abiding citizens have the constitutional right to carry guns to defend themselves.
