Kentucky Senate Hears Bill to End Child Marriage

Head seemed to strike a chord with his co-authored bill that would establish continuing education requirements for licensed healthcare practitioners who apply for a controlled substances registration.

"The biggest issue though, quite frankly, was just the philosophical difference", he said, referring to the House's plan to use revenue diversions and the Senate's plan to use cuts and the main savings account.

"The scourge of opioid addiction has wreaked havoc on our state, and this bill is an attempt to limit the supply of these drugs on our streets", said House Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha. Barbara Bollier, a Mission Hills Republican who supported the version that passed the House.

"There's literally only a handful of cases that would fall under what I would say are potentially abusive", said Moraitis, who also is chairman of the Broward County Republican Party.

"I'm proud because there is no invasion of the Rainy Day Fund". The House members who voted against it Wednesday were Rep. Joseph Abruzzo, D-Boynton Beach; Rep. Ramon Alexander, D-Tallahassee; Rep. Lori Berman, D-Lantana; Rep. Al Jacquet, D-Lantana; Rep. Bobby Olszewski, R-Winter Garden; Rep. David Richardson, D-Miami Beach; Rep. Emily Slosberg, D-Boca Raton; Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando; and Rep. Cynthia Stafford, D-Miami. "We just wanted to get it right".

But both sides had a backup plan: their budget. A House amendment to the bill also requires health care practitioners to advise patients seeking help for pain of other treatment alternatives, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, osteopathic manipulation, a chronic pain management program, and chiropractic services. But critics of the proposal suggested the proposal would cost more than $5.2 million a year.

In other words, each chamber could kill the other's education bill.

One lawmaker's boast about the budget sums up why it is a dismal failure.

Pregnant Inmates. Senate Bill 133 would improve outcomes for pregnant inmates by limiting shackling during childbirth and by allowing access to substance abuse treatment.

"People above my paygrade are going to negotiate that", Burns said.

"This fight is not over, it is far from over", Jones said.

The Legislature didn't finish until 10:45 p.m., and without the Senate taking up its sexual harassment legislation. Chaulk said afterward that because the amendment would've brought more cuts, it would've jeopardized the deal apparently made between the House and the Senate.

"We think it's a victory today, we hope we can keep having conversations, that we get some kind of common sense legislation around pensions", Winkler said.

Critics, however, said adding the special language to a must-pass appropriation bill may have clouded how lawmakers actually feel about the policy change. "We want to let them know how their vote will affect public education", Beckett said.
