Citizens can attend legislative meetings again
By Robert Weber, LRC
Frankfort, KY - Kentuckians can once again view legislative committee meetings in person now that a recent change in COVID-19 visitor restrictions no longer prevents citizens from entering the Capitol and Capitol Annex.
Visitors who attend legislative committee meetings should enter the Capitol Annex through the visitor's entrance, the center doors on the front of the building.
To view the weekly calendar of committee meetings, go online to: https://apps.legislature.ky.gov/legislativecalendar.
Audience seats in legislative committee rooms have been spread out to prevent people from sitting elbow-to-elbow. If a meeting is expected to attract significant interest, an overflow room will be prepared so that anyone who doesn't find a seat in the meeting room can view the action on a screen.
For more than a year, committee meetings have been livestreamed so that people who couldn't attend meetings due to COVID-19 restrictions could view them online. The livestreams will continue. (For more information, go to https://legislature.ky.gov/Public%20Services/PIO/Pages/Live-Streams.aspx)
While the first floor and basement of the Capitol Annex are open to visitors, citizens must have a scheduled appointment to enter the second, third and fourth floors of the Annex where lawmakers' offices are located.
The Legislative Research Commission's guidance on mask-wearing reflects recommendations issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fully vaccinated people are not required to wear a mask inside legislative offices located in the Capitol and Capitol Annex.
