Governor Presses for Tax Modernization


Governor Fletcher and Daniel Groves


Frankfort, KY:  Governor Ernie Fletcher was joined by a bipartisan group of state lawmakers today to unveil a sweeping plan for stimulating the state's economy and creating jobs by modernizing the tax system.


The plan, called Jobs and Opportunity Bipartisan Solution for Kentucky (JOBS for Kentucky), is a revenue-neutral approach to tax modernization that reduces marginal tax rates and expands the tax base.  It eliminates or reduces income taxes for hard-working Kentuckians, raises cigarette taxes and dramatically overhauls the state's business tax structure.
