Last week the Senate voted to pass a budget resolution paving the way for critical tax reform. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was the only Republican to vote no.
In response to the Senator’s vote, Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson stated, “The Kentucky Chamber and the Kentucky business community are disappointed that Sen. Rand Paul did not vote for the proposed budget last week-a critical step toward comprehensive pro-growth tax reform. We urge Sen. Paul to listen to his constituents and the job creators in Kentucky and support comprehensive tax reform moving forward.”
Prior to the budget vote Dave Adkisson had hand-delivered a letter to Sen. Paul’s office asking for his support.
The Kentucky Chamber advocates for a fair and simple tax code, which would lower the corporate tax rate, improve the competitiveness of the U.S. and lessen the tax burden of businesses thereby encouraging more investment and jobs in the Kentucky and the U.S. as a whole.
