Blue Ribbon Tax Reform Commission
Early last month, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform held its first meeting to begin the process of addressing a long-discussed issue in the Commonwealth. They’ll wrap up their workshops early next month and begin a series of public meetings around the state with a session in Paducah in late May. Tax reform is a complex and contentious set of issues, and to get some perspective on how the commission will navigate those issues, I sat down with one of its members, CSI Chairman and former board chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Saint Louis, John Williams, Senior.
John Williams, Senior is a member of Governor Steve Beshear’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform. The commission is set to begin a series of public meetings around Kentucky on May 29th in Paducah.
