Legislative perspective on Kentucky General Assembly

As we celebrate the holidays and get ready for the new year, many of us may find ourselves taking a moment to recall the positive things in our lives.

Statewide, there has been some good news in recent months worth noting. The job market overall is looking somewhat better, with the state’s unemployment rate down, and we’re working on improving the economy here in our legislative district.

A national ranking this year showed us doing well among the states in the number of new start-up companies, and the news channel CNBC recently reported that Kentucky has the lowest cost of doing business.  Both of these point to a promising 2013.

Beyond our economy, good news can be found at our schools as well. Early this year, the respected “Education Week” magazine put Kentucky 14th among the states in its “Quality Counts” report, which measures academic progress.
