  • Productive start to 2017 legislative session

    By Kentucky State Rep. Brandon Reed


    For the first time since 1921, Republicans took control of the Kentucky House of Representatives, making our first week back to Frankfort a historic one. We have been hard at work doing exactly what the voters of Kentucky sent us to Frankfort to accomplish.

    The result of this was an extremely productive first week of the 2017 session, in which priority bills to improve the economy, protect life, and make government more accountable passed through the General Assembly.

  • What is a Digital Executor?

    What happens to your Digital property after your death? This subject recently jumped out at me because I lost two close friends over the past few months.

    Both deaths were rather sudden and the individuals Facebook account was the last thing on their love one’s minds. However, as I continued to view posts and memories from their Facebook profile, I began to wonder when, if ever, the account would be removed.
