KENTUCKY~ Environmental activists and upset neighbors clamor as a McCracken Zoning officials approve a coal terminal and coal2liquid plant. Expect (minor) delays on US-51 bridge in Ballard County. Graves County Amish who refuse to put slow-moving vehicle emblems on their horse-drawn buggies get their day in Appeals court today. Bath salts are now illegal. Senators may be poised to (finally) vote on the Medicaid budget bill. US Senator Rand Paul keeps making mentions he’s eying a 2012 presidential bid (but won’t run against his daddy). The Kentucky League of Cities’ new CFO is a former Legislative Research Commission official.
