The Kentucky General Assembly has convened for the 2018 session — a budget session in which the 2018-2020 budget will be written and enacted.
Facing a $1 billion shortfall, the legislature and Governor have a choice.
Will they choose to cut spending even more, as Kentucky has done over the last decade?
Or will they clean up special interest tax breaks that benefit only a few in order to invest in the things that benefit us all?
It is clear that Kentucky needs more revenue. You can’t get something for nothing, and if we don’t choose to raise revenue and invest in our Commonwealth, our schools, public safety, infrastructure, public health systems and so much more will continue to be underfunded, understaffed and hurt our future.
Email your state legislators and ask them to choose investments in Kentucky over special interest tax breaks.
Your voice is important in the fight for a tax system where everyone chips in for the investments that benefit us all. We need a state budget that makes those investments, instead of continuing to cut.
