Share your views with legislators on the issues

-A A +A

As we get ready to close out 2013, let me wish you and your family a happy New Year! 

It’s time again for members of the Kentucky General Assembly to meet for a 60-day legislative session that is frequently called a “budget session.” During this time, my colleagues and I will work to develop a two-year budget for state government. We will also discuss other issues important to Kentuckians, including jobs, economic development, education and health care. 

In order to gain your perspectives on a variety of issues, I invite you to share your opinion on priorities and concerns. It is important to me to hear about issues that you and your families who live in my districts deal with on a daily basis.

I have provided a survey covering important topics the General Assembly may consider during the 2014 Session.  Please take the time to review it, answer the questions, and return it to Senator Jimmy Higdon, 204 Capitol Annex Building Room 003, 702 Capitol Ave., Frankfort, KY 40601

I thank you for your time and your effort in completing this survey, and please feel free to make copies to give to your family and neighbors. The more feedback I receive, the better I can represent you.

If you should ever need to contact me, do not hesitate to call my office in Frankfort at 502-564-8100, or my home at 270-692-6945.  I am honored to be your state senator, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. 

Note: Senator Jimmy Higdon (R-Lebanon) represents the 14th District including Casey, Marion, Nelson and Spencer Counties, as well as part of Jefferson County.
