The law is an extension of a 2007 program that allowed Ford to invest more than one billion dollars into its two Louisville plants to expand the workforce and re-tool assembly lines.<br /> Mon, 09 Apr 2012 09:00:00 +0000 Kenny Colston (KPR) 17555 at http://wkms.org Toyota Auto Incentives Auto Incentives Bill http://wkms.org/post/auto-incentives-bill <p>A Louisville lawmaker is looking to enhance job creation in Kentucky&#39;s auto industry by amending a law that&#39;s already on the books.<br /><br />House Speaker Pro Temp Larry Clark has filed House Bill 400 to update the 2007 Kentucky Jobs Retention Act, which helped bring 3,000 jobs to Ford plants in Louisville.<br /><br />This year&#39;s bill would retract requirements that incentives only go to facilities in Louisville or Lexington. That would let Kentucky&#39;s other two car makers take advantage of the program.<br /> Thu, 16 Feb 2012 22:08:56 +0000 Kenny Colston (KPR) 16955 at http://wkms.org
