Senator Humphries At Cadiz Rotary Club

First District State Senator Stan Humphries says he will continue to work for some important legislation that will benefit the local area and the state. Senator Humphries discussed a number of legislative items with the Cadiz Rotary Club Tuesday afternoon, including the Books for Brains legislation that failed to receive final approval in the Kentucky Senate.

Humphries and 5th District State Representative Kenny Imes said some of the hesitation by Kentucky lawmakers was spurred by a group called "Take Back Kentucky." Humphries says he also wants to continue exploring P-3 or Public, Private Partnership involvement in managing some aspects of the Kentucky Department of Parks. The Senator admitted there are some by fellow state lawmakers.

Senator Humphries said he can also see why many in the local community are concerned about the park marina and other services.

Senator Humphries, who represents Trigg, Lyon, Calloway, Graves, Fulton and Hickman Counties, also discussed the state budget and other issues dealt with by the Kentucky General Assembly during the session that wrapped up in April.
