In general, the most visible work of the state legislature is during our regular session, but committees continue to meet over the summer and fall. This time is used for Interim Joint Committees, formed from the standing committees of both houses, to undertake in-depth studies of new issues and to monitor the progress of newly enacted laws.

I am a member of the following Interim Joint Committees: Agriculture; Appropriations and Revenue; Education; Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs Task Force; Local Government; and State Government. I am the Co-Chair the following Interim Joint Budget Review Subcommittees: Postsecondary Education and Primary and Secondary Education.

During the interim, the Statutory Committees also will continue to meet. As Chair of the Capital Planning Advisory Board, I am responsible for planning the agenda and overseeing the flow of each meeting. This board, comprised of sixteen members representing all three branches of government, is required by statute to create a six-year comprehensive statewide capital improvement plan, encompassing all state agencies and universities. We are working diligently to develop the plan for submission to the Governor, the Chief Justice and the Legislative Research Commission by November 1, which is the deadline required by statute. This comprehensive plan will be used in the 2014 budget process and the regular legislative session.

Please feel free to call me toll-free at 1-800-372-7181 with any issues or concerns. I will continue to update you periodically on what’s going on in Frankfort. In the meantime, I hope you and your families are enjoying the start of summer.

Senator Stan Humphries (R-Cadiz) represents the 1st District including representing Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Lyon and Trigg counties. He is the Chairman of the Capital Planning Advisory Board and the Budget Review Subcommittee on Education, as well as the Vice-Chair of both the Education Committee and the State and Local Government Committee.
