2018 Legislative Recap

The 2018 Kentucky General Assembly, a 60-day or “long” session, ended on April 14. Throughout the session, KyCPA advocates reviewed nearly 900 bills, met with legislators, and joined forces with other business organizations to ensure your interests were represented at the Capitol. As a result of these efforts, many KyCPA priorities saw final passage, including several tax reform measures, CPA firm mobility, and reforms to Kentucky's workers' compensation and public pension systems.
