“ …House Bill 67, an amendment declaring “no right to abortion” in Kentucky’s Constitution, didn’t make it to a vote on the Senate floor. It passed the House in mid-March, yet didn’t receive consideration in the Senate. Westerfield said he and his colleagues never received “a good or consistent answer” as to why HB67 didn’t get a vote in the Senate.
“Constitutional amendments are immune from gubernatorial vetoes. Had HB67 passed the Senate, Kentucky voters could have approved the measure in November’s general election.
“Westerfield insisted the constitutional amendment will be brought up again when the Kentucky legislature reconvenes next year.”
