Juneteenth In KY

To commemmorate the day of the end of slavery with ties in KY, Juneteenth is on its way to becoming a federal holiday, but the effort to make it a state holiday has been put on hold.Last year, Kentucky Senate leaders promised to file legislation to make Juneteenth a state holiday but it never got filed.“We were working on so many big issues, it probably slipped through the cracks but I apologize for that,” Senator Robert Stivers said.State Representative George Brown, also vice chair of the Kentucky Black Legislative Caucus, is picking up the slack. He plans to pre-file a bill today.
