During a special-called meeting of the Ohio County Chamber of Commerce last Thursday, the Chamber invited Kentucky State Representative Tommy Thompson (D) and State Senator C.B. Embry, Jr. (R) to give an update on this year’s session of the Kentucky State Assembly.

Both Thompson and Embry discussed certain bills that passed this year and bills that didn’t pass, but were important to each. At the end of the meeting, Thompson and Embry took questions from the audience.

The topics discussed ranged from dating violence to the motor fuels tax to heroin abuse to a potential statewide smoking ban.
