Please take a few minutes to review the 2019 LEGISLATIVE FOCUS to learn about issues Commerce Lexington Inc. will be tracking on behalf of the business community at the local, state and federal levels this year. Additionally, below is a brief summary of some of the issues we will be engaged with in the beginning of 2019.
In January, state lawmakers return to Frankfort for a 30-day Regular Session. The dynamics will be different with more than 30 new members, and the same as Republican maintain super-majorities in the House and Senate. The “short” session occurs in odd-numbered years and is historically focused on policy items rather than budget issues. One of the priority issues is expected to be another attempt at reforming the state’s financially-troubled public employee pension systems.
