Thursday, Kentucky Chamber Public Affairs Manager Travis Burton presented Senator Ralph Alvarado of Winchester with the Kentucky Chamber MVP Award. Senator Alvarado 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 three years in office, Senator Alvarado has been a strong friend to the Chamber and to the business community,” said Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson. “This session, he sponsored many pieces of legislation to improve Kentucky’s legal liability climate, specifically Senate Bill 2, a constitutional amendment on tort reform, and carried peer review legislation to passage.”
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.
