The Kentucky Office of Treasurer Amendment did not make the 2012 ballot in the state of Kentucky as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have eliminated the office of state treasurer. A similar measure was proposed in 2008 by State Senator Damon Thayer. However, that measure did not make the 2008 ballot.[1]


The following is information obtained from the supporting side of the measure:

  • State Senator Damon Thayer was the main sponsor of the measure.[1]
  • According to Thayer: "I don’t feel in recent years the treasurer’s office has performed a task requiring 30 employees and a three million dollars budget. I think it’s time to put this issue on the ballot and let the voters decide if they want to keep this office."[1]


The following is information obtained from the opposing side of the measure:

Path to the ballot

If 60% of the membership of each chamber of the Kentucky General Assembly approves, a proposed amendment goes on the ballot at the next general election during which members of the state legislature are up for election.
