Stumbo Urges Lawmakers To Look Closely At Senate Immigration Bill

House Speaker Greg Stumbo distributed a letter to lawmakers Friday warning them to look closely at an immigration bill that breezed through the state Senate on a 24-14 vote on January 7th. The Kentucky Head Start Association claims, if passed, the legislation could subject staffers and bus drivers to felony prosecution for assisting undocumented immigrants. Stumbo says no one thinks the bill was written to deny children the benefits of Head Start, but rushing legislation through the process with no opportunity for public hearings can lead to terrible errors. The measure awaits action in the House, where its future is uncertain.
