On Monday, Senator Ralph Alvarado was presented the Chamber MVP Award by Kentucky Chamber Vice President of Public Affairs Kate Shanks. Senator Alvarado was among a select group of legislators who “went to bat” for Kentucky business during the 2020 Kentucky General Assembly.
“During this legislative session and throughout his time in office, Senator Alvarado has shown strong leadership to help move our state forward,” said Shanks. “We especially thank Senator Alvarado for sponsoring the COVID-19 response bill that made many changes to help businesses responding to the pandemic including providing liability protections for health care workers and personal protective equipment manufacturers and the bill that increased the age to buy tobacco to 21.”
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.
