The Kentucky Senate easily passed a bill supporting a constitutional amendment Wednesday to create a victims’ bill of rights. Typically, general assembly changes to the state constitution come later in the session. 

Senate President Robert Stivers says he could envision four such amendments winning approval.  If so, the Clay County lawmaker says that would break precedent. “I can’t remember, I honestly, in my career I can’t remember us having really more than two,” said Stivers.
