Thanks to Rep. Leslie Combs




To the Editor:

Fellow Eastern Kentuckians,

We need to let our representative, Leslie Combs, know that we truly appreciate her endorsement of HB262. This bill promises fair and sensible solutions that can move Kentucky forward.

It will provide help for working families.

It will raise about $250 million in revenue.

How will this be accomplished?

It will restore Kentucky’s estate tax on the richest 1 percent of our population. (Those with estates valued at over $1 million).

It will decrease the state income tax burden on families with the lowest income.

The wealthiest 1 percent received a tax cut a few years ago with the average family reduction being $35,000 (47 times the average decrease for middle-income).

It would apply sales tax to many services that have been developed in the past 30 years.

We must raise money in Kentucky. We wonder why our children have trouble competing in the work force. Kentucky now ranks 50th (at the bottom) in per capita investments in K-12 education.

Thank you, Leslie Combs, for endorsing HB262 and moving Kentucky ahead. You can thank Leslie by leaving a message at 1-800-372-7181.
