Representative Adam Koenig was presented the Kentucky Chamber MVP Award last week after a group of Kentucky legislators said he “went to bat” for Kentucky business during the 2022 Kentucky General Assembly by displaying conspicuous actions to strengthen business, improve competitiveness, and ensure growth.

Recipients of the Kentucky Chamber MVP Award show strong leadership for the business community by sponsoring or carrying Chamber priority legislation to final passage, showing leadership on passage of critical legislation to improve Kentucky, or by taking hard votes in defense of business.

“Over Chairman Koenig’s career, he has always been a strong champion for business and job creators,” said Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Ashli Watts. “Because of his leadership, he has helped modernize Kentucky’s workers’ compensation system, transformed our signature industries, and worked to make Kentucky more competitive. He has been such a strong supporter of pro-growth policies, and this past legislative session he was the only legislator in the state House to have a 100% voting record with the Kentucky Chamber.”

During the 2022 session, Koenig carried House Bill 606, legislation to enact sports wagering in Kentucky, which passed the House for the first time this year.

While 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 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.
