State Representative Rocky Adkins said a couple of matters important of the people of Lewis County have seen some positive action in Frankfort over the past week.

Adkins said a synthetic drug bill, spurred on by Sheriff Johnny Bivens, is on track to become law and a state budget hammered out by the House of Representatives includes matching funding for the construction of a new school building.

“I think this week has been a very good week for Lewis County and issues that the residents of Lewis County are concerned with,” Adkins said Friday.

“We passed the budget bill out of the House this week and a very important item that was in the budget bill was the equalization of the nickel levy that was passed by the people of Lewis County in December to have the money locally to build an new school for Central Elementary and also do much needed upgrades at other school facilities throughout the county,” he said.
