The Kentucky League of Cities tracked nearly 300 bills throughout the 2016 legislative session. More than 35 bills that will impact Kentucky cities became law. The KLC legislative team, along with the help of our member cities, successfully lobbied for the passage of sixteen KLC initiatives. In total, 39 KLC-supported bills passed the General Assembly and zero bills that KLC opposed passed.
