FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) – Teachers aren’t the only ones protesting the Governor’s vetoes on budget and tax plans.

UPS, which has a hub in Kentucky, is asking the Kentucky General Assembly to override the veto.

“The elimination of the personal property tax on inventory and eliminating tax penalties associated with the creation of jobs is imperative for growth in the Commonwealth,” said Nick D’Andrea, VP of State Public Affairs. “We applaud the General Assembly for taking a big step in comprehensive tax reform and look forward to working with the General Assembly and the Governor to continue to improve the business climate in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”  

The assembly is back in session today.
