State House

A bill seeking to amend Kentucky's Constitution to restore voting rights for some felons has sailed through the state House.

FRANKFORT, Ky.  -- House Speaker Greg Stumbo is no longer demanding that any legislation calling for a constitutional amendment to legalize gambling in Kentucky start in the Senate.

"That line in the sand doesn't have to be drawn anymore," Stumbo told reporters during a Capitol press conference on Thursday. "I don't care if it's a House bill or a Senate bill."
