Kentucky Chamber Issues State Progress Report

By Rick HowlettThe Kentucky Chamber of Commerce says the commonwealth is seeing gains most of the areas that make up the foundation of its strategic plan for improving the state.That's according to a progress report issued Monday during the chamber's annual economic summit in Louisville."(The areas are) education, government modernization, health and wellness, global competitiveness and energy. And in four of those five goals we're moving forward," said Bryan Sunderland, the business group's Vice-President for Public Affairs.The report describes Kentucky's status in the health and wellness category as "standing still," citing the state's continued low rankings on national indicators and and the failure of wellness initiatives in the 2010 General Assembly.
