Rep. Tilley Attends National Judicial Conference

Rep. Tilley named to multi-state legal panel; also invited to summit on fair courts

Frankfort – Recognizing his work as chairman of the Kentucky House of Representatives’ Judiciary Committee, House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Chief Justice John Minton have both recommended state Rep. John Tilley to play a role in two select groups that are focusing on legal matters.

Recently, Speaker Stumbo appointed Rep. Tilley to serve this year and next on the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Law and Criminal Justice Committee.

Chief Justice Minton, meanwhile, has joined with the American Bar Association in selecting Rep. Tilley to take part in an invitation-only conference the association is hosting this week. The conference, which is being held in Charlotte, NC, will host representatives from each branch of government from every state, with a focus on helping the judicial branch have the resources they need to keep courts strong, efficient and responsive to those they serve.

“I am proud to be able to take part in both of these,” Rep. Tilley said. “They each offer many opportunities to learn how we can improve our court system here in Kentucky. I think we have one of the best in the nation, but there are always areas where we can do more.”
Rep. Tilley began his tenure as House Judiciary Chairman in January, and has been serving Christian and Trigg counties in the House since 2007.
