History

Populist State Senator J. H. McConnell of Otter Pond, Kentucky,
successfully pushed a statewide I&R bill through the state senate in 1900,
but the measure failed in the house. Kentucky initiative advocates had to
settle for a state law, passed in 1910, establishing the initiative process in
most of the state’s cities.

By the 1970s this municipal I&R provision (Kentucky Revised Statutes,
Ch. 89) applied to all of the state’s 27 largest cities except Louisville. In
1980, however, the legislature passed a new municipal government law
which abolished the provision.
