The Kentucky House of Representatives has resolved to thank Gov. Bevin for his stand for life and to honor his legal team. Please take a moment to read these Resolutions, HR218 and HR219. HR218 states: (We added the colors/emphasis to encourage readership of the content!)
A RESOLUTION honoring Governor Matt Bevin's legal team for their tireless work defending life.
WHEREAS, Kentuckians recognize, respect, and revere the sacred value of every human life; and
WHEREAS, for far too long the status quo in Frankfort had been to allow thoughtful and strong pro-life legislation to languish or dissolve into irrelevance due to a lack of passion or support from the Executive Branch of the Commonwealth; and
WHEREAS, the Attorney General has repeatedly refused to defend the pro-life laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, but has repeatedly written memos to discourage the General Assembly from passing such legislation, and has sided with pro-abortion groups such as the ACLU over the will of Kentucky's citizens; and
WHEREAS, Governor Bevin’s legal team has accepted the challenge to defend the critically important pro-life legislation passed by the General Assembly and has assumed the duties constitutionally mandated to be performed by the Attorney General; and
WHEREAS, Governor Bevin's legal team consists of only three attorneys who have dedicated a tremendous number of hours to the fight for life, working thousands of hours with no overtime pay; and
WHEREAS, through their dedication, Governor Bevin's legal team has saved the Commonwealth tens of thousands of dollars by not hiring expensive outside law firms;
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the General Assembly of the 21Commonwealth of Kentucky:
Section 1. The members of the House of Representatives hereby pay tribute to the dedicated and tireless work of Governor Bevin's legal team at this pivotal time in the fight for life and in defense of our most innocent citizens, the unborn.
Section 2. The Clerk of the House of Representatives is directed to transmit a copy of this Resolution to Governor Matt Bevin.
HR219 honors our governor:
