The 2021 Regular Session gaveled in yesterday. We have received additional information and are sharing this updated GA 2021 Accessibility Guide UPDATED AS OF 02/01/21, as well as additional materials to share. Please continue to share this guide with your networks, and if you have additional information, please share those details with us!
We will continue to ask questions about how Kentuckians will be able to participate meaningfully and safely during session with respect to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and safety precautions in place. We will provide updates as timely as possible when new information is available.
2021 STANDING COMMITTEES
In order to effectively advocate the policies we promote, it is critical to know who sits on each committee, especially with so many new members joining the 2021 General Assembly. The House Standing Committees and the Senate Standing Committees are all listed in the linked documents and below. We encourage to familiarize yourselves with these legislators and even reach out to introduce yourselves if they are a freshman member.
As you can already see by the headlines, although this is an odd-year “short” session, we anticipate a tremendous amount of activity to be packed into its “30-days”. Like Day One clockwork, an impressive 75 Senate Bills and 174 House Bills were filed yesterday.
