Kentucky’s constitution may be changed if a bill, currently pre-filed, is passed that will allow General Assembly to create statutes of limitation for civil actions involving death, personal injury and property damage. This bill would set limits on non-economic damages for civil complaints. This change would be an amendment to Section 54 of the Constitution of Kentucky which currently prohibits the state from pressing such limits.
The primary sponsor of this bill is Senator Ralph Alvarado who filed a similar bill last year which did not make it out of the Senate.
The most recent effort to amend the Kentucky Constitution happened when “Marsy’s Law” passed the legislature. This Law was later halted by a judge who ruled that the language on the ballot was unclear.
