Child marriage laws in Kentucky could be changing

This is a change lawmakers have considered several years now. It passed the House last legislative session but later died in a committee. Source WLBT

Meanwhile, supporter of the bill and a woman who was forced to marry her older perpetrator at 16, Donna Pollard, said opponents of the bill include a group of conservative lawmakers who 'lobby lawmakers on social issues, ' the newspaper reported. Republican Sen. Bill Galvano said he asked for and received the approval of Feis' family before proposing the amendment.

"It took longer than people would like, but I feel good about this product", said Sen.

She also would have liked a ban on assault-style rifles, like numerous students who traveled to the state Capitol to ask lawmakers to go even further to stop future mass shootings.

This bill would provide that the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services be under the umbrella of the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

"My community was rocked". "Coupled with the MCOPS (providing additional policing around schools) program we passed several years ago, this is another tool to keep our children safe in the classroom". While we didn't see any competitive races around GOP-dominated Franklin County, Democrats turned out in droves across the state, not just in the dependably Democratic veins of Northern Virginia and the urban crescent.

Teachers again called for lawmakers to "find funding first", some shouting "tax reform", prompting Sen. Florida's House and Senate are majority Republican, and their legislative session ends Friday.

Rep. Andy Gipson, R-Braxton, the principal author of HB 1083, said he hasn't read the Senate version in full, but objects to language added saying permit holders can not bring their weapons to school athletic events.

"We must be the last families to lose loved ones in a mass shooting at a school".

Apparently the game won't only feature south Florida, as there will be missions that send you to South America. Nevertheless, this is a fun little rumor to play around with.

"We will make budget cuts and ensure stability for West Virginia", Senate President Mitch Carmichael said today on MetroNews' "Talkline". They did so with three gun bills two weeks ago. The House will now have the chance to review the amended bill.

Senate Bill 6620 requires enhanced background checks for purchasing semi-automatic rifles and raises the purchase age for those weapons from 18 to 21.

Senate Bill 874, introduced by Senator Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) would have, according to the bill, "Require [d] drivers to give a signal plainly visible to pedestrians or other drivers upon backing, stopping, turning, or partly turning from a direct line whenever any pedestrian or other vehicle may be affected by such movement".

House Bill 2208 would allow private certified firearms instructors to train teachers, who are allowed, to carry a concealed firearm on school property. Those who have military or law enforcement experience or who teach Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps programs could be eligible, with 144 hours of training.

Lawmakers refused to challenge Gov. Chris Sununu on the question of a public boat launch on Lake Sunapee, voting 210-to-114 to defeat a bill (HB 1706) to bond $2 million for a public boat launch at the Wild Goose site favored by Fish and Game, but opposed by the governor.

"Huh?" Rep. Pitcher said to nervous laughter from the committee.

"You know what that means in my experience?"
