On Thursday, Kentucky Chamber Director of Political Affairs Travis Burton was in Bourbon County to present Senator Steve West with the Chamber MVP Award. Senator West was among a select group of legislators who “went to bat” for Kentucky business during the 2019 Kentucky General Assembly.
“During this legislative session and throughout his time in office Senator West has shown strong leadership by addressing key business issues to help move our state forward,” said Burton. “This session, Sen. West worked closely with the Kentucky Chamber to pass Senate Bill 8, making positive changes to professionalize the panels that handle teacher termination.”
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.
