LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – The state’s top community, business and political leaders joined together Tuesday for the 27th annual Kentucky Chamber Day Dinner.

More than 100 people were in attendance. The crowd enjoyed food while listening to remarks from top state lawmakers including Governor Andy Beshear as well as House and Senate leadership.

The politicians used some of the time at the dinner to discuss the state of Kentucky and their plans to improve the commonwealth in the coming years, saying both sides need to come together to make that happen.

“When the will of our people and the weight of our government get behind the problem, we can solve it, and we have problems to solve,” said Senator Morgan McGarvey – (D) Louisville.

Some of the issues touched on included child care and tax reform. Those in attendance also said they’re glad COVID-19 numbers are decreasing statewide, in turn allowing them to attend the dinner which was postponed in January due to the surge at the time.
