On Monday, House Majority Leader John “Bam” Carney was presented the Chamber MVP Award by the Kentucky Chamber’s President and CEO Dave Adkisson, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Ashli Watts, and Director of Political Affairs Travis Burton. The award was also presented by Murakami Manufacturing CEO Michael Rodenberg.
Carney 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, Leader Carney has shown strong leadership to help move our state forward,” said Adkisson. “We thank Rep. Carney for passing key business issues including arbitration agreements and carrying a floor amendment to address concerns of the business community on legislation making changes to Kentucky’s education accountability system.”
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.
