(1) Even though Stumbo voted yes to the informed consent bill (SB 4) (1/28/16) as Speaker of the House, he originally failed to vote on a procedural motion that would have revived the ultrasound bill. Source: www.lrc.ky.gov/record/16RS/AB4.htm. While Stumbo was Speaker (the most powerful member of the Kentucky House), all but one pro-life bill died. For this reason and for past votes he cannot be relied upon to protect innocent human life.

(2) Sponsored HB 416 (2/27/13) (House Committee Substitute) which expanded gambling in Kentucky by creating two new lottery games. It also expanded digital video slot machines at horse tracks under the auspices of shoring up the state pension fund. The bill passed but was rejected as unconstitutional by the Senate (2/27/13).
