Local Chamber Network,
We know that transportation infrastructure investment is a critical issue for the business community. The Kentucky Chamber is once again leading the effort to increase revenues for our transportation system. We need your help! Legislators always want to hear from their constituents back home, including the business community. Attached is a draft letter advocating for increasing transportation revenue. It would be wonderful if you can share this with your legislators. It is our goal at the state level to engage every community in the infrastructure conversation. We have to empower our elected officials to act now, during the 2021 session, to support our road projects. If you send it to your legislators, please send me a copy of each letter. Cities and counties are passing resolutions in support of the effort too.
Another necessary coalition that the Kentucky Chamber is a part of is the Partnership for Commonsense Justice (PJC). The Chamber has endorsed Senate Bill 5, sponsored by Senate President Robert Stivers.
Below is the liability paragraph to share with your members:
Legal Liability and COVID-19 Campaign:
The Kentucky Chamber is a member of the Partnership for Commonsense Justice, a coalition of job creators, healthcare providers, and community leaders spreading the message of the need for meaningful legal reform in Kentucky. COVID-19 has severely hurt Kentucky’s economy. We need to be proactive in getting our economy back on track. COVID-related issues are sure to dominate the upcoming legislative session. We need our legislators to support reasonable limits on COVID litigation to help us create new jobs and protect the jobs we have. The coalition will focus on passing meaningful legal reforms that will create #jobsnotlawsuits for Kentucky. Join the coalition network for free for opportunities to engage with your legislator on COVID-19 liability legislation and stay informed on the rapidly-changing legal reform issue.
Let me know if you have questions about either of these.
