Kentucky Chamber Urges Paul To Support Federal Budget
The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is urging U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Bowling Green to support passage of the federal budget. The chamber says this is the first step toward federal tax reform.
In a letter to Sen. Paul, the chamber advocates lowering the corporate tax rate, and simplifying the tax code. Kate Shanks is a spokesperson for the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. She says they wanted to make it clear that the business community supports making these steps toward tax reform, and the chamber is hoping the Bowling Green Republican will join them in those efforts.
“It’s our understanding that Sen. Paul has yet to commit his support for the budget bill, so that’s what we are specifically asking of him,” Shanks said.
Shanks says reducing the corporate tax rate would allow Kentucky manufacturers and small businesses to grow. She says the chamber has not yet received a response from Sen. Paul.
