Near real-time email notifications are now available for those tracking legislation the Governor has signed or vetoed in Kentucky.

The Secretary of State’s Office has started an email and RSS service. Spokesperson Les Fugate says it works quickly.

“The Governor will either sign legislation or veto it, it will come down to our office, we will scan it and upload it immediately, so citizens can know, basically at the moment that it has occurred, what the Governor has decided on that particular piece of legislation,” he says.

Fugate says the information has been available at the secretary’s website for a number of years, but few people were looking at it.

He says more than 200 people have signed up for the service; most of them are lobbyists and reporters, but it’s available to everyone.New S
