Full Bill Text
HR 218 is a resolution honoring Governor Matt Bevin’s legal team for their “tireless work defending life.”
The resolution argues that the state Attorney General has:
[…]repeatedly refused to defend the pro-life laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, but has repeatedly written memos to discourage the General Assembly from passing such legislation, and has sided with pro-abortion groups such as the ACLU over the will of Kentucky’s citizens.
The resolution further claims:
[…]Governor Bevin’s legal team has accepted the challenge to defend the critically important pro-life legislation passed by the General Assembly and has assumed the duties constitutionally mandated to be performed by the Attorney General.
HR 218 states:
The members of the House of Representatives hereby pay tribute to the dedicated and tireless work of Governor Bevin’s legal team at this pivotal time in the fight for life and in defense of our most innocent citizens, the unborn.
Companion resolution to SR 257.
3/14/19 – Introduced.
3/14/19 – Adopted by the House.
