During the legislative session break, Beshear will join the NKY Chamber for the January Government Forum to discuss the state of Kentucky, including the recent awarding of federal funding grants worth $1.635 billion for the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project.
“The $1.635 billion grant for the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project is one of the largest grants in our nation’s history and attendees will get to hear first-hand from Gov. Beshear about this landmark announcement,” said NKY Chamber VP of Public Affairs, Tami Wilson. “Attendees will also walk away with a more thorough understanding of Gov. Beshear’s priorities and how they will specifically impact the Northern Kentucky region and our local economy.”
Beshear will also discuss his 2023 priorities which include job creation, the electric vehicle revolution, investments in the lithium and bourbon industries, and transportation.
The second Beshear to serve this century — his father Steve served from 2007 to 2015 — Andy has served as the 63rd governor of Kentucky since December 2019.
Prior to serving as governor, he served the state as Kentucky’s 50th Attorney General from 2016-2019. In his role, he fought against the opioid epidemic, led efforts to recognize, report and prevent child abuse and human trafficking and protected seniors from scams, fraud and physical and financial abuse.
The lunch event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel Cincinnati Riverfront (668 West Fifth Street Covington, Ky 41011).
Tickets to Government Forum are $50 for NKY Chamber members, $60 for future members, the NKYP rate is $45, and are available online at www.nkychamber.com/GovForum. Advanced registration is required.
