Most new state laws will take effect June 25

FRANKFORT — Most legislation passed by Kentucky's 2013 General Assembly will take effect June 25, the state attorney general's office said Monday.

The attorney general's opinion came from a request by Legislative Research Commission director Robert Sherman about the effective date of legislation passed during this year's law-making session.

The opinion said all legislation passed during the session, except for general appropriation measures and those containing emergency or delayed effective date provisions, will take effect "the first moment" of June 25.

On that date, 90 full days will then have passed after the session ended March 26. The timetable of 90 days is set by the Kentucky Constitution.
