GLI announces 2020 Legislative Outcomes and Most Valuable Policymakers

GLI’s 2020 Legislative Outcomes report details the major wins for businesses from this year’s sessions in Frankfort and Indianapolis and highlights the region’s Most Valuable Policymakers.

“The 2020 sessions presented us with unprecedented and unexpected challenges in advocating for the business community’s needs. However, despite the onset of a global pandemic, our regional business community succeeded in passing several key pieces of legislation that will be critical to greater Louisville’s economic recovery,” said GLI President & CEO Sarah Davasher-Wisdom.

Key legislative measures championed by GLI in 2020 include reforms to Kentucky’s expungement laws, legislation to address substance use disorder in the workplace, COVID-19 relief, funding for public transportation, and support for Kentucky’s Bourbon industry.
