Rand Paul Testifies in Kentucky Legislative Committee in Favor of Restoring Ex-Felon Voting Rights

On February 19, U.S. Senator Rand Paul testified in Frankfort in a State Senate Committee hearing, in favor of HB 70. The proposal, if passed by the legislature, would ask the voters if they wish to amend the State Constitution to let most ex-felons register to vote. The bill would exclude ex-felons who had been convicted of murder, treason, bribery, or certain sex crimes.

The bill has already passed the House, and with Senator Paul’s support, will probably pass the Senate. The House has a Democratic majority but the Senate has a Republican majority. See this story.
