Kentucky Passes Civil Rights Legislation In Reaction To Rand Paul
Remarks by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky have led that state’s legislature to pass civil rights legislation.
Louisville Democratic Sen. Gerald Neal introduced the resolution Friday during a special session on the state budget. It was adopted without objection in the predominantly Republican chamber.
