State Senator Damon Thayer (R-Georgetown) was recently awarded the 2nd Annual Chamber MVP Award from the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.  Sen. Thayer was selected, along with 11 other legislators, for his strong support of the business community.
“This legislative session was perhaps one of the most successful I’ve seen in years, and that was due in no small part to this group of legislators,” said Dave Adkisson, Kentucky Chamber president and CEO.
Thayer, as the sponsor of Senate Bill 2, championed comprehensive legislation to overhaul the public employee retirement system, a priority of the Kentucky Chamber since 2007.  With the bill’s passage, taxpayers will save $10 billion over the next 20 years and businesses have the long-term predictability they need to create jobs and make other investments in Kentucky.
“A healthy business community is vital to our state’s economy,” said Sen. Thayer, who serves as the Senate Majority Floor Leader.  “It is critical that we in the General Assembly do what we can to promote a strong business community that will in turn create jobs.”
