On Tuesday, Rep. Adam Koenig, Rep. Kim Moser, and Rep. Sal Santoro were presented the Chamber MVP Award by Kentucky Chamber Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Ashli Watts. Representatives Koenig, Moser, and Santoro were 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 their time in office, Rep. Koenig, Moser, and Santoro have shown strong leadership to help move our state forward,” said Watts. “These northern Kentucky legislators are dedicated to addressing the key issues facing Kentucky’s business community.”
- Rep. Adam Koenig sponsored legislation to legalize wagering on sporting events, which will make Kentucky more competitive and generate revenue for Kentucky’s woefully underfunded pension systems.
- Rep. Kim Moser sponsored legislation to ban tobacco use on school campuses and a bill to protect patients from misleading advertisements.
- Rep. Sal Santoro sponsored legislation to bring critical infrastructure investment to Kentucky.
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.
