Jobs and the Economy


Kentucky’s businesses continue to struggle in our slow and shaky recovering economy. Our economic prosperity depends on state government eliminating government regulations and overburdening corporate taxes that put our businesses at a competitive disadvantage. We must stop punishing successful companies that create good jobs.

I have stood firm, making difficult decisions to protect Kentucky jobs. In the 2010 session, I voted against the budget that contained $1 billion in new debt and $300 million in job-killing taxes.

I will continue to work for tax relief, and fiscal policies that will grow our economy.
