The Kentucky League of Cities named Senator Chris McDaniel (R-Ryland Heights) a Friend of Kentucky Cities, according to an announcement from the organization.
He is among 20 lawmakers recognized with the award.
The state league of cities annually recognizes legislators who advocate for issues and secure the passage of legislation important to cities.
Chiefly, McDaniel sponsored Senate Bill 112, which allows counties to give tax information to taxing jurisdictions when needed for audit purposes.
As Senate Budget chair, McDaniel oversees legislation that impacts the state’s tax policy and the biennial state budget.
“Receiving the Friend of Cities award is a great honor, and I’m grateful for KLC’s partnership in crafting sound public policies that help our cities prosper,” McDaniel said. “As the senator for northern Kenton County, I consider the advocacy of KLC incredibly important. I look forward to working with them in the 2023 Legislative Session.”
