The new laws include an increase a 70 cent increase in the minimum wage, making Bluegrass Music the official music of Kentucky and allowing breast-feeding mothers to be temporarily excused from jury duty.

One of the new laws will allow the state Transportation Cabinet to raise speed limits on some roads up to 70 miles per hour. Transportation spokesman Doug Hogan said it was still uncertain exactly when the change would take place, but it was possible it would be after the Fourth of July holiday.

Convicted sex offenders will be required to register their Internet identities with the state, and cell phones will be off-limits to school bus drivers while they're driving students.
