House Democrats Join In Bipartisan Effort to Bring Jobs to Kentucky

House Democrats were proud to join in a bipartisan effort to bring good paying jobs to Kentucky. On the last night of the 2017 Session of the General Assembly, the House unanimously voted to approve a $15 million incentive package which was instrumental in bringing Braidy Industries to the Commonwealth. Earlier this week, Braidy announced its $1.3 billion aluminum plant will be built in South Shore, Kentucky. This investment will create 1,000 construction jobs and 550 permanent jobs in the region, which are estimated to pay over $70,000 annually. House Democrats attending the announcement ceremonies included state Rep. John Sims Jr. of Flemingsburg, pictured at far left, and House Minority Leader Rocky Adkins of Sandy Hook, at far right, and state Rep. Kevin Sinnette of Ashland.
