Chairman Wilson called the meeting to order at 10:19 a.m. The roll was called and, with a quorum being present, the committee was duly constituted to conduct business.
Motion made by Mack Bushart, seconded by Marc Robbins, to approve the minutes of the November 10, 2011, meeting as presented. Motion carried.
Chairman Wilson reminded members of the Governor’s budget address, to be televised tonight at 7:00 p.m. Ms. Hampton gave an update on one of the KACo Affiliates’ top issues, the office of Constable. While there are two bills dealing with a constitutional amendment to eliminate the office, there have been no sponsors for a bill to “strip” the duties of the Constable – which is the preferable route expressed by Legislative Committee members. Hampton and other KACo staff are planning to meet with Sen. Julie Denton this week on the bill she has proposed, and there will be an update on this issue at the next Legislative Committee meeting.
