Three Bills Get Positive Votes

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A bill that would make human trafficking a felony in Kentucky won final passage in the state House on a 96-to-nothing vote today. The measure already cleared the Senate 37-to-nothing and now goes to Governor Fletcher.

A proposal requiring cigarette makers to sell only self-extinguishing cigarettes in Kentucky has won House passage today on a 98-to-nothing vote. Before giving its approval, the House attached an amendment to the bill. That means the proposal goes back to the Senate, which will decide whether to accept the change.

The process for deciding where coal gasification plants can be built would be streamlined under a bill approved by the Kentucky House today. The bill was modified slightly from the version that passed the Senate on Monday.
