    The top legislative priority of Kentucky’s Republican led Senate easily won approval Wednesday and now moves on to the Democratic House.  Senate Bill One passed on a vote of 25 to 12, primarily along party lines.


Legislation to revamp how academic standards are set in public elementary, middle, and high schools is headed to the Kentucky Senate. The measure is one of this year’s top priorities for senate republicans.
