FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - At least 22 new Kentucky laws go into effect on July 15, which means victims of domestic violence will find it easier to obtain concealed carry permits, adult care employers will be able to check a new adult abuse registry to see if prospective employees are listed, and some Kentucky nurses will have broader prescription-writing authority.
The state constitution specifies that new laws take effect 90 days after the legislature adjourns, with the exception of general appropriation measures and those containing emergency or delayed effective date provisions.
The General Assembly's 2014 session adjourned on April 15, making July 15 the date that most of the laws go into effect.
