Gov. Beshear signed two of the Chamber’s top priorities into law today. Senate Bill 13 is designed to bring Kentucky’s alcohol laws closer to that of 2013 standards and SB 2 along with House Bill 440 will save Kentucky’s ailing public employee pension system.
In a bill signing ceremony today, Gov. Beshear noted the monumental nature in which a compromise was reached to reform the pension system.
“The recent legislative session offered a renewed spirit of cooperation and thoughtful discourse. That new atmosphere allowed us to reach a bipartisan agreement to solve the most pressing financial problem facing our state — our monstrous unfunded pension liability and the financial instability of our pension fund,” said Beshear.
The Chamber applauds the governor and legislators for their collaboration and dedication to passing these business-friendly laws.
