Sen. Max Wise's Legislative Update - Fri 8 Mar 2019

Senator Wise reports on sixth week of the 2019 regular session.
Personal political commentary/opinions of the writer

By State Senator Max Wise, (R-Campbellsville)
16th District: Adair, Clinton, Cumberland, McCreary, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne Counties

The sixth week of the 153rd regular session of the General Assembly was punctuated with robust committee meetings, floor debates and rallies on a myriad of public policy issues.

A major priority going into session was addressing issues that surfaced after last year's tax overhaul. The Senate took up the issue when it voted 33-0 to pass House Bill 354, amended by a committee substitute.

The main feature of HB 354 would exempt nonprofits from collecting and remitting sales tax on admissions to charity events in addition to making it clear in statute that sales from one-time fundraising events are not subject to the sales tax of the commonwealth.

Kentucky leading on Civil Service Apprenticeships

By Alex Englen

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky launched an initiative to include public service apprenticeships as part of the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet job classification system last year, becoming one of the first states in the nation to implement such an program. Today, Education and Workforce Development Cabinet (EWDC) Secretary Derrick Ramsey hosted a roundtable discussion to highlight civil service apprenticeships and share findings from the Urban Institute report entitled "Leading by Example: Public Sector Apprenticeships in Kentucky."

Modern apprenticeships are an employee training program that combines on-the-job training and classroom instruction under the supervision of an experienced business professional. As a proven strategy for recruiting, training and retaining employees, Kentucky has utilized the apprenticeship model to fill workforce pipelines with highly skilled, diverse, productive workers. Each modern apprenticeship program is customized to meet the particular needs of a business.
