A new commission created by Gov. Matt Bevin will look at creating economic opportunities for Kentuckians.
Bevin's office says the Economic Opportunity Commission will consist of 12 voting members appointed by the governor. Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton will serve in an ex officio capacity.
Hampton says she hopes the commission eliminates economic barriers.
The commission will conduct studies and compile data about barriers faced by Kentuckians due to race, sex, ethnicity or socio-economics status.
