SB140 signed into law

Gov. Beshear signed three pieces of legislation into law on Thursday, March 17, 2022, including Senate Bill 140, which was sponsored by Sen. Max Wise.

Gov. Beshear said that SB140 "allows patients to take the medication that their doctor believes is best for their treatment, rather than the medicine the insurance company - or those who set drug prices - think is best. In times past, patients would have to start with the insurance company's preferred medication."

The other bills signed today were:
  • Senate Bill 64, sponsored by Sen. Mike Wilson, which allows any public agency to establish a peer support counseling program for Kentucky's public safety officers who have faced a traumatic, emotional, difficult incident while on duty.

  • House Bill 284, sponsored by Rep. Michael Meredith, which will significantly improve the efficiency of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's vehicle title and registration process by allowing for electronic filing of applications for titles and liens.
