Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce members can enjoy breakfast at the Cincinnati Airport Hilton while recognizing members of the Northern Kentucky Legislative Caucus on Thursday, April 25.

The NKY Chamber will host its annual Legislative Appreciation Breakfast at the Hilton Cincinnati Airport (7373 Turfway Road, Florence) from 7:15 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The special reception will include members of the Northern Kentucky Legislative Caucus and will celebrate legislative successes from the recent Kentucky General Assembly as it relates to the NKY Chamber’s legislative agenda.

“We greatly appreciate the service of our NKY Legislative Caucus during this past legislative session,” said John Nienaber, the NKY Chamber’s Vice Chair of Public Affairs. “We look forward to working with them during the interim to help educate the business community and the Caucus about the needs to advance pro-business legislation in the 2020 Session to improve our overall business climate.”

The Kentucky General Assembly passed legislation to cleanup measures from the 2018 tax modernization efforts for non-profits and local community banks; clarified employment arbitration statutes based on a recent KY Supreme Court ruling; addressed NKU’s public pension crisis; banned tobacco at our K-12 schools; and allowed KEES scholarships to be used at trade schools.

Tickets to the NKY Chamber Legislative Appreciation Breakfast are $35 for NKY Chamber members, $40 for future NKY Chamber members, $30 for NKYP Passport holders, and are available here.  Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
