Update: House Bill 277March 18, 2006 at 1:57 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Yesterday I decided to see what was happening with this bill. I must say that I did not like what I found. The last time I wrote about this bill was on Feb. 11, 2006. The bill has passed through the Senate with 37 yeas and 1 nay. Then the House voted on it again with 90 yeas and 5 nays. The bill is now on the governor’s desk waiting for him to sign it. For anyone who doesn’t remember this is the bill:
- AN ACT relating to the promotion of history and declaring an emergency.
- Create a new section of KRS Chapter 6 and amend KRS 7.090 to direct the Legislative Research Commission to display the national motto "In God We Trust" on the wall directly above and behind the dais of the Speaker of the House of Representatives; require the display to be consistent with the historic and patriotic display in the United States House of Representatives.
Now I guess the future of this bill lies in the hands of our corrupt governor. I guess we are screwed. This is a sad turn of events. I will be sure to keep you updated on the status of this bill. The nice thing about the webpage for this bill also has the voting history on this bill. The names are listed so you know which legislators are representing our values. This will become very useful at election time. Sorry I had to bring everyone bad news. You can read all of the details at: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/record/06RS/HB277.htm
