Smith presented Kentucky Chamber MVP Award

Sen. Brandon Smith, left, was recently presented the “MVP Award” by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce for his work on business issues in the legislature.

Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Policy Development Kate Shanks recently presented Sen. Brandon Smith with the Chamber MVP Award.

Smith was among a select group of legislators who “went to bat” for Kentucky business during the 2019 Kentucky General Assembly, according to a statement from the chamber.

“During this legislative session and throughout his time in office Sen. Smith has shown strong leadership by addressing key business issues to help move our state forward,” said Shanks. “We thank Sen. Smith for working closely with the Kentucky Chamber on legislation to update private net metering laws to ensure costs remain fair for all consumers.”

In addition to monitoring the progress of bills that create a better business climate and advance the Commonwealth, the Chamber tracks how each legislator votes on these bills. The statement said the chamber’s MVP award recipients displayed more than just a business-friendly voting record, but also went out of their way, and at times across party lines, to support or oppose an issue critical to the business climate in Kentucky.
