  • "A House bill filed this week would address a blind spot in federal background checks that allows mentally ill Kentuckians to buy guns. Rep. Bob Damron, D-Nicholasville, wants state courts to notify the Kentucky State Police when they commit people to a mental institution or otherwise find them mentally incompetent. Under Damron’s House Bill 308, state police would inform the FBI, which would add the names to its National Instant Criminal Background Check system, used by federally licensed gun dealers to screen their customers." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "Registered independents would be allowed to vote in a party’s primary election under a bill the Senate State and Local Government approved Wednesday. Senate Bill 41, sponsored by Sen. Jimmy Higdon, R-Lebanon, is similar to a measure the Senate passed last year but the House did not consider." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "When, out of the Blue so to speak, the request to demolish part of the Whiskey Row block on Main Street suddenly got a green light from City of Louisville officials, we wondered if something had changed in the proposed Iron Quarter project. The answer is, maybe. Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the deal told Insider Louisville that a hotel development and operations group is working with Todd Blue and Cobalt Ventures LLC to put a W. Hotel into Iron Quarter." [Insider Louisville]
