The Labor & Industry Committee is an interim joint committee of the Kentucky General Assembly.

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

To provide a continuity of study and action between sessions, interim joint committees are formed from the standing committees of both houses. For instance, the Education Committee of the Senate and the Education Committee of the House become the Interim Joint Committee on Education after the regular session.

Interim committees, besides discussing and studying issues in-depth, draft and approve bills for prefiling for the next regular session. This enables bills to be introduced at the beginning of the session and standing committees to become active immediately. All interim committees, which are actually subcommittees of the Legislative Research Commission (LRC), are open to the public and the press so the people have an opportunity to express views on areas the proposed legislation will affect.[1]

Function

The Labor and Industry Committee studies "matters pertaining to the work-force and workplace not specifically assigned to another committee; labor unions; collective bargaining; liquefied petroleum gas and other flammable liquids; electricians; plumbers and plumbing; wages and hours; garnishments; safety and health of employees; child labor; employment agencies; apprenticeships; unemployment compensation; workers' compensation; consumer protection; and industrial weights and measures."[2]
