Kentucky legislators introduce veterans business bill



Associated Press

Legislators in Kentucky have introduced a bill that would help veterans in the state start small businesses, reported The Associated Press. The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Jody Richards, D-Bowling Green, calls for state administrators to waive registration fees and reduce annual report-filing payments for veterans looking to start small businesses in life after service.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes pitched the legislation to Richards and promoted the bill, HB 367, in front of the Kentucky House Committee on Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Safety. The group, on March 2, authorized HB 367 and passed it along to their colleagues in the House of Representatives for review.

“Kentucky is proud to be the home of 50,000 active military men and women, and importantly, over 300,000 veterans,” Grimes told The State Journal. “A top priority of mine as secretary of state has been to honor the service and sacrifice of our military women and men.”

The legislation, if passed, would form the basis for a veterans business initiative tentatively called “Boots to Business.”
