Local legislators to provide update on 2018 General Assembly

HENDERSON, Kentucky — On the heels of Gov. Matt Bevin’s State of the Commonwealth Address, local state legislators will share their views on the 2018 General Assembly at the Kyndle Legislative Update Breakfast on Monday, Jan. 22.

In his address, Gov. Bevin has proposed budget cuts of 6.25 percent to most agencies and the elimination of 70 state programs as he and the General Assembly seek to address the state’s severely underfunded pension programs. Pension reform is a top priority of the governor and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

“This will be an extremely challenging legislative session,” Kyndle CEO Tony Iriti said. “The timing is perfect for us to hear from our legislators about what to expect and what lies ahead for Kentucky state government and its employees.”

Invited to speak are:
State Sen. Dorsey Ridley (D-Henderson), who is the minority caucus chair
State Rep. Robby Mills (R-Henderson)
State Rep. Suzanne Miles (R-Owensboro)
State Rep. Jim Gooch (R-Providence)

The Legislative Update Breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. Monday at the Big Rivers Electric Corp. Training Center, located across Third Street from the Imperial Building between Water and Main streets. The event is sponsored by Big Rivers and Kenergy Corp.

The cost is $15 for Kyndle members and $20 for nonmembers. A breakfast buffet will be served.

For reservations, contact Kyndle at 270-826-7505 or info@kyndle.us by noon this Friday, Jan. 19.

Kyndle is the chamber of commerce for Henderson and Henderson County as well as the lead regional economic development organization for Henderson, McLean, Union and Webster counties.
