With action by the governor on every bill passed in the 2013 session, some of the more interesting new laws are starting to stick out. There are always a few bills that get lobbyists and lawmakers rolling their eyes, and this year is no different.
For example, a bill signed into law describes Ale-8-One as "an original" Kentucky soft drink. We also now have a law honoring Winchester as the birthplace of beer cheese.Another law re-classifies a handful of Kentucky cities as larger than they really are.Thanks to Kentucky lawmakers, someone in a family trust or small business can now bid for items at an auction outside of those entities--just in case you have a nasty family dispute over grandma's dishes.And lastly, there's a law that lets people hunt coyotes anytime, any place, with shotguns. Kentuckians can now rest assured that they can legally bag as many of animals as they want.
