First elected in 2011, Senator Paul Hornback currently represents the District 20 in the Kentucky State Senate. As a member of the governing body in a state with a rich outdoor sporting heritage, Senator Hornback quickly joined the Kentucky Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus after his election to office in 2012.
During his tenure, Senator Hornback has continually supported pro-sportsmen’s legislation and promoted hunting and angling across the Bluegrass State. Senator Hornback was a strong supporter of SB 55, authored by National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses President Senator Robin Webb. This bill prohibits government interference in the donation of game meat to non-profit organizations in need of the free-meal distribution. The support of this pro-sportsman’s bill and others exemplifies Senator Hornback’s commitment to the sportsmen and women of Kentucky.
Kentucky is home to over 900,000 sportsmen and women who contribute nearly $2 billion in retail sales and support 35,000 jobs in the Bluegrass State.
