Rep. Rick Rand Represents House Democrats on KET’s Kentucky Tonight on April 10th

Offering his assessment of the 2017 legislative session of the General Assembly, Representative Rick Rand (D-Bedford) said that GOP plans to cut corporate taxes and increase sales tax on average Kentuckians, they will be moving Kentucky in the wrong direction. In addition, Rep. Rand discussed the hurried and harmful way that charter school legislation was rushed through for a vote in the House. He said that if the GOP majority in the House is so proud of charter school legislation, why did they have to rush it through, blocking teachers and superintendents from being able to protest and have their voices heard on the subject.
