Sen. Rand Paul slated to speak about felon rights

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is expected to speak tomorrow before a state Senate committee in support of a proposed constitutional amendment.

The proposal, if passed, would restore voting rights for certain non-violent felons who have completed their sentence and parole.

The proposal was approved by the House and is being considered by the State and Local Government Committee.

Sen. Paul, a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016, has urged the passage of the measure, saying voting rights are "sacred."

If approved, the bill would go on Kentucky's November ballot.
