Statement from House Republican Floor Leader Jeff Hoover

FRANKFORT, Ky.  – “While we acknowledge the historical perspective of the Civil War in Kentucky, there is a time that we move on from that history and set our Commonwealth on a different path. Therefore I am calling on Governor Steve Beshear to issue an executive order to relocate the Jefferson Davis statue from the Capitol Rotunda to the Kentucky History Center.

If the Governor issues an executive order for the removal of the statue, I will pre-file a bill that will create a commission to suggest to the state curator another Kentuckian to be placed in the Capitol Rotunda.”
