New Kentucky Laws Become Effective July 14
Wednesday, July 11, 2018 10:55 AM
Most new laws approved during the Kentucky General Assembly's 2018 session
will go into effect on Saturday, July 14. KHA’s priorities all become
effective on July 14, except for SB 112 (Alvarado),
telehealth legislation, which contained a special effective date of July 1,
The Kentucky Constitution specifies that new laws take effect 90 days after
the adjournment of the legislature unless they have a special effective
date, are general appropriations measures, or include an emergency clause
that makes them effective immediately upon becoming law. Final adjournment
of the 2018 Regular Session was on April 14, making July 14 the effective
date for most bills.
