HB 465, the bill that reorganizes 43 professional licensing boards, will likely receive a vote in the Kentucky House of Representatives this afternoon and if so, will likely pass.

NASW-KY has been working very hard on your behalf to effect changes to the bill that will decrease any potential harm to Social Workers. In fact, the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Adam Koenig, has shown he is willing to work with NASW-KY on the bill. This is a good sign, but there is work left to be done.

There are still many steps left for them to pass this bill, and NASW will be working with the Senate to make the bill better for licensed social workers. We will keep you updated.

In peace and solidarity,

Brenda Rosen, MSW, CSW, ACHP-SW

Executive Director, NASW-KY
