Action Alert: House likely to vote on LIFT Kentucky today

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce supports Local Investments for Transformation (LIFT) Kentucky, a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow local citizens an up-or-down vote on the funding of fixed infrastructure projects and costs at the city and county level. House Bill (HB) 2, a bipartisan measure sponsored by House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Minority Leader Jeff Hoover, has the support of over 80 groups representing Kentucky’s business, civic, labor, and local governments in rural and urban communities across the Commonwealth.

It is possible that LIFT will receive a floor vote in the House of Representatives today.

“We are urging our members to call their legislators and ask them to vote in favor of HB2,” said Ashli Watts, Acting VP of Public Affairs for the Kentucky Chamber. “Please ask your legislators to let voters decide on important local projects that will improve the quality of life in the Commonwealth and increase economic development.”
