The Kentucky Senate has passed a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow the Legislature to block administrative regulations issued by the governor's administration when the General Assembly isn't meeting.
Democratic Sen. Julian Carroll of Frankfort, a former governor, says the measure goes too far and creates an imbalance of power between the two branches of government.
The measure passed the Senate 24-14 and now moves to the House. It would go on the November ballot if the legislature passes it.
The proposed amendment is Senate Bill 1.
