Kentucky Chamber President commends ‘historic’ 2017 session

dave povAppearing on Louisville’s WDRB News, Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson touted the 2017 session of the General Assembly as “historic” and applauded the work of legislators to make the state more competitive.

“From the beginning, legislative leaders kept a clear business-minded focus on ‘How can we move Kentucky forward?’   ‘How can we create more quality jobs?’” Adkisson said.

In the “Point of View” segment, Adkisson pointed to the passage of laws including right to work, repeal of the prevailing wage, charter schools, legal reforms, and more.

Adkisson also pointed to the work still to be done on pension and tax reform, likely to be done in a special session later this year and said the Kentucky Chamber looks forward to working with the legislature and the governor to solve those critical issues.
