Kentucky Chamber of Commerce top spender on lobbying in state legislature

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Backing a series of high-profile economic bills, the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce spent more money lobbying state lawmakers than did any other interest group during the first two months of the current General Assembly, new data shows.

The business group paid out more than $88,000 in January and February in support of measures that included repealing prevailing wages on public projects and eliminating requirements that union members pay dues in order to join, according to the state’s legislative ethics commission.

The chamber was a proponent of a bill, which Gov. Matt Bevin signed into law Tuesday, allowing charter schools in Kentucky. Among other priorities, it pushed for repealing the moratorium on nuclear power plants in the state, the creation of panels to evaluate medical malpractice claims and requiring a bond for appealing planning and zoning cases.  

The U.S. Justice Action Network, a self-described coalition of “progressive and conservative partners” seeking criminal justice reforms, spent the second-highest amount – nearly $63,000.  The group supports Senate Bill 120, a sweeping measure meant to help felons re-enter society after leaving prison.

Different versions of SB 120 have passed both the House and Senate.

Altria Client Services of Richmond, Va., the lobbying arm of tobacco conglomerate Altria Group, the parent company of cigarette maker Philip Morris, spent the third-highest amount at more than $57,000.

A similar amount was spent by Marsy’s Law for All, an organization that is working to pass legislation amending states’ constitutions to include protections for crime victims. Two bills in the Kentucky legislature failed to advance out of committees this year

The earliest a constitutional amendment could go on the ballot in Kentucky is in 2018.

“Amending a state constitution takes a lot of time and resources, both of which have been devoted to ensuring success during the legislative session and when it’s in the hands of the voters,” Ashlea Christensen, the executive director of Marsy’s Law for All in Kentucky, said in a statement.

Other organizations that incurred more than $30,000 in lobbying expenses during the first two months of the General Assembly were the Kentucky Justice Association; the Kentucky League of Cities; the Kentucky Bankers Association; Anthem Inc., and its affiliates; Greater Louisville Inc.; and the Kentucky Medical Association.

Greater Louisville Inc., the Louisville-area chamber of commerce, has supported charter school legislation, the appeals bond bill and a measure that would allow the Louisville Arena Authority more time to collect revenue for a tax-increment financing district near the KFC Yum! Center.

Overall, organizations reported spending $4.35 million on lobbying during January and February. The Kentucky legislature reconvenes March 29 for its final two days.
