Blue Ribbon Commission

A group of three economists hopes to provide key input to Kentucky's tax commission this summer. The Blue Ribbon Tax Commission picked three professors to act as consultants as the group considers changes to the state's tax code. Two are from the University of Kentucky and one is from the University of Tennessee.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear’s office has awarded the contract for the Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform to a three person team made up of two consultants from the University of Kentucky and one from the University of Tennessee.  The Governor says the individuals selected for the consulting team have the necessary experience to address the issues before the Commission.
