A number of new laws in Kentucky will go into effect this Saturday (July 14, 2018) and include measures on education, safety, price gouging and teen marriage. Senate Bill 48 prohibits anyone under age 17 from getting married in the state and will require a district judge to approve the marriage of any age 17, as of July 14, 2018. Senate Bill 160 clarifies laws preventing price gouging during times of emergency, and Senate Bill 71 requires the inclusion of abstinence education in any human sexuality or sexually transmitted disease curriculum in the state in high schools. Other new laws will now require motorists to keep their vehicle at least three feet away from bicyclists while passing, increases what breweries can sell on site to three cases and two kegs per customer, and requires pharmacists to provide information about safely disposing of certain prescription medications. High school graduates will also now be required to pass a financial literacy course in order to graduate.
