“[Governor Matt] Bevin has already voiced support for a ‘consumption-based’ tax system, which would shift some state reliance from income to sales taxes. Since Kentucky notably exempts prescription medications and food purchases from its 6 percent sales tax on goods, it’s reasonable to assume that the General Assembly may be willing to rethink that structure in a tax reform plan, [State Senator C.B.] Embry said. ‘It will be a very difficult, controversial and probably unpopular plan,’ he said. ‘We don’t know what it will look like yet, but we need to prepare for what’s coming.'”
