Abstract

It is not possible to do the same sort of legislative history of a Kentucky law that one does for a federal statute because the Kentucky legislature does not publish legislative debates or committee reports - the basic materials of a true legislative history.

Nonetheless, there are a few measures that a researcher can take to better understand a legislative enactment. This article provides a simple step-by-step method for researching the limited legislative history of Kentucky statutes.
