Articles

Issue Position: Protecting Children

Jan. 1, 2019

Protecting Kentucky children from sexual abuse, exploitation, child trafficking, domestic violence, and cyber-bullying will be a priority for Wil Schroder. As a Senator, Wil assisted with the passage of Jenna's Law, which changed the statutory rape law to state that a 16- or 17-year-old is incapable of consent when the other person involved is 28 years old or older.

Issue Position: Drug Epidemic & Substance Abuse

Jan. 1, 2019

Drug addiction impacts Kentuckians across the Commonwealth and knows no boundaries. As a former felony prosecutor in Campbell County, Wil worked with law enforcement to stop drug traffickers and help addicts receive the treatment they needed. In 2015, Schroder was one of five senators assigned to a conference committee to negotiate with House Democrats on key heroin legislation. That bill increased penalties for drug traffickers, expanded treatment options for addicts, and allowed the use of Naloxone (Narcan) without a prescription, which resulted in thousands of lives being saved. In the sessions that followed, Wil continued to support bills aimed at ending the opioid epidemic. Wil Schroder supports expanding treatment options for addicts, especially in our jails and prison system. Deceptive practices by drug manufacturers led to an overprescribing of highly addictive opioids that has wreak havoc on our Commonwealth. Wil Schroder will hold these companies accountable and will not be afraid to stand up to big pharmaceutical companies.

Issue Position: Protect The 2nd Amendment

Jan. 1, 2019

The right to bear arms is a fundamental right guaranteed by our Constitution, and Wil Schroder will stand up for your 2nd Amendment Rights. Wil received an "A" rating by the NRA in both of his Senate races. The United States Supreme Court will hear an important case on our Second Amendment rights during their next term. While Kentucky's current Attorney General decided to remain silent on this issue, Wil Schroder would let the Court know his views on the importance of upholding the Second Amendment. As a prosecutor and a state senator, I swore to uphold the Constitution of the Commonwealth and our Country. As Attorney General, protecting your Constitutional Rights will be a top priority."
