ABC Responds to Industry Growth

4cf4f5_1900d92b03f84a7ca7d7ff6bb8821a96

Kentucky’s alcohol landscape is changing, and the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) works daily to ensure that it matches industry growth with exceptional and efficient customer service. ABC has experienced an increase in call volume since SB 11 took effect, fielding approximately 85-105 phone calls each day. In addition, the department reviews and renews licenses for up to 1,400 sites each month. The work volume has not deterred department leadership from giving careful consideration to every application and inquiry received. Once a new locality officially becomes “wet,” ABC assigns a licensing specialist from the department to assist with incoming applications. The local government has the authority to write and approve ordinances, determine local ABC administrators, and impose license fees as authorized by law.

Fight against hunger

Quarles Ryan

By Ryan Quarles, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture

The Kentucky Hunger Initiative got off to a great start in 2016. There are many ways that you can help. The easiest way is to check the box on your state income tax return – it’s on Line 33 on Form 740 – to donate part of your tax refund to the Kentucky Farms to Food Banks Trust Fund. You also may donate directly to the trust fund. Contributions to the fund are used to offset farmers’ costs for providing Kentucky-grown fruits and vegetables to food banks. The fund is administered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Farmers may donate foods to nonprofit food programs and receive a state tax credit equal to 10 percent of the value of the donated product. When you donate food, you improve your cash flow while helping feed a Kentucky family.

Dr. Aaron Thompson addressed an audience of about 270 at Richmond’s Unity Breakfast on Monday. Thompson, a resident of Richmond and a former Eastern Kentucky University professor and administrator, is the interim president of Kentucky State University. Thompson said he grew up in Clay County where his father was a coal miner and his family lived in what he called a sharecropper’s cabin, which he also referred to as a shack. He first attended an integrated school in 1965 and his parents voted for the first time in 1968. The breakfast, organized by the Richmond Human Rights Commission, took place at the First Christian Church. EKU President Michael Benson, whose office paid for the breakfast meal, said Thompson’s story is an example of education’s power.

Paul: Raise Taxes to Keep Medicaid

shutterstock_103349744

U.S. Senator Rand Paul suggested Sunday that Kentucky and other states that expanded Medicaid under federal health reform should have to raise taxes to keep it expanded and not rely on the federal government to continue the benefit. Paul said the Obama administration misled the public about the federal government’s ability to pay for the expansion, “So I’d say that if you want to have more Medicaid you should say we’re going to have to have higher taxes to pay for it.”
