FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky General Assembly has banned electronic cigarette sales to minors, allowed minors under 14 to referee youth soccer games and approved the state's first use of a medicinal marijuana product as the session winds down.
The legislation was passed Monday, lawmakers' last day before a two-day veto session in a couple of weeks.
Notable bills that are likely dead include bills banning natural gas companies from seizing private land for a proposed oil pipeline and a bill restoring voting rights to some convicted felons.
Democratic House leaders and Republican Senate leaders spent most of the day in closed-door meetings finishing work on the state's $20 billion biennial budget.
Lawmakers will adjourn for two weeks, giving Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear time to either sign or veto legislation. Lawmakers return April 14 to review any vetoes.
