DSC 1317GREENVILLE, Ky. (10/9/18) — Gov. Matt Bevin met with constituents during an open forum last night at the Wendell Ford Training Center in Greenville. Bevin fielded questions from the audience ranging from attracting new industries to right-to-work legislation.

Bevin said Muhlenberg County could improve its chances of attracting new businesses by improving infrastructure and workforce readiness. When I69 is completed its Canada to Mexico trajectory, western Kentucky should be more attractive to businesses to move into the area.

Bevin answered questions about right-to-work legislation and its impact on Kentucky workers. He also answered questions from several working and retired educators about SB 151, which pertains to the state retirement system.

He also addressed the needed expansion of internet availability in rural areas of the state.

A member of the audience asked Bevin if he would release his personal tax returns. Bevin said all business investments required to be disclosed by Kentucky statutes is filed and updated annually online and is available to public view. He also said his personal tax returns are personal and will not be released.
