LOUISVILLE, Ky. — On Thursday, Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson and Kentucky Chamber Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Ashli Watts, presented Rep. Jason Nemes of Louisville with the Chamber MVP Award. Rep. Nemes was among a select group of legislators who “went to bat” for Kentucky business during the 2018 Kentucky General Assembly.
“During this high-profile legislative session and his two years in office, Rep. Nemes has been a strong friend to the Chamber and to the business community,” said Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson. “Rep. Nemes sponsored and passed House Bill 198, transparency in private attorney contracting, a key Chamber priority for several years. To thank him for his work on behalf of the business community, we are presenting him with a Chamber MVP award to recognize his support of pro-business policies in such a historic session.”
In addition to monitoring the progress of bills that create a better business climate and advance the Commonwealth, the Chamber tracks how each legislator votes on these bills. The Chamber’s MVP award recipients displayed more than just a business-friendly voting record, but also went out of their way, and at times across party lines, to support or oppose an issue critical to the business climate in Kentucky.
