FRANKFORT — House Speaker Greg Stumbo said Wednesday that the legislature will likely not tackle any gambling related legislation this session, which begins next week.
Proponents of expanded gambling have pushed the legislature to change the law to allow for video lottery terminals or VLTs at the state’s race tracks. However, those efforts have been stymied by the Republican-controlled Senate over the past several years.
FRANKFORT — A Lexington lawyer running as an independent for governor wants a Franklin Circuit Court judge to decide whether it is appropriate to put his campaign’s mailing address on forms for signatures he needs to get on the ballot in November.
Gatewood Galbaith and his running mate Dea Riley must get 5,000 signatures by August to get on the November ballot for the governor’s race. The form for those signatures does not tell those who have signed where to send the information once the form is completed. Typically, the forms are sent back to the respective campaign headquarters before it is forwarded to the Secretary of State.
