Kentucky General Assembly & AARP Day at the Capitol 2023
AARP is making a difference in Kentucky – whether it’s fighting to protect your hard-earned Medicare and Social Security benefits, saving you money on your utility bills, or ensuring you can live independently as we age. Kentucky’s 2023 General Assembly begins January 3, 2023. During this 30-day "Short Session" our local volunteers and grassroots activists from across the state will advocate on policy issues that matter most to Kentuckians 50-plus and their families. AARP Kentucky will be in Frankfort supporting relief for family caregivers who pay expenses out of their own pockets’ and fighting to prevent the financial exploitation of vulnerable adults.
Get Involved & Take Action
We need your help to connect with lawmakers during the 2023 General Assembly to keep costs of living affordable and supporting the needs of Kentuckians 50-plus. Watch your email for more updates and details. You can help by monitoring the session and engaging your lawmakers in-person and remotely in support of AARP Kentucky’s legislative priorities. These issues include: lowering prescription drug prices, eliminating health care disparities, financial security in retirement, supporting unpaid family caregivers, increasing independent living options, and access to affordable high-speed internet for all Kentuckians.
