Back in October, we told you about Kentucky State Representative C.B. Embry and his bill to name the Chevrolet Corvette the Official Sports Car of Kentucky. The bill is a costless measure intended for honoring General Motors because their Corvette plant is a vital feature of the Bluegrass State's economy. Such a measure would normally speed through, ideally only taking up a few minutes of the legislative process, but it seems to have encountered a snag. There are simply too many more pressing issues at hand. For that reason the chairman of the House Committee on State Government has placed the Corvette bill at the end of the line. The backend of that queue also consists of a few other "feel good" pieces. They address such matters as naming cornhole (think bean bag toss) the official state game, burgoo the official state dish and KFC the official state picnic food.
