A panel of legislative leaders including Acting House Speaker David Osborne, Senate Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer and Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee Chair Chris McDaniel will discuss the recently passed reforms and what further changes will need to be made based on any oversights crafting the law and more during the Policy Makers Panel moderated by Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson.

Members of the Bevin administration including Commissioner of Revenue Daniel Bork and State Budget Director’s Office Economist Greg Harkenrider will speak about how the changes to the tax code will be interpreted and implemented.
