Lawmakers review petition process in Ky.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - After hearing from groups that favor
changes in Kentucky's petition process, lawmakers asked staff to
draft legislation that would make the law clearer and more
consistent.
The issue stems from a petition that was submitted in August by
the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky and the Northern
Kentucky Tea Party calling to disband a planning committee. The
petition was not certified because not enough names could be
verified.
Under Kentucky law, the petitioners were required to get
signatures from 25 percent of the number of people who cast votes
in the last presidential election. That's 17,491 signatures.
Home Builders Association President Brian Miller told a
lawmakers' panel on Tuesday that the threshold should be lower, the
Kentucky Enquirer reported
