3 NKY Lawmakers Named Kentucky Chamber MVPs

Three lawmakers from Northern Kentucky were named MVPs and presented with awards by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

State Reps. Adam Koenig (R-Erlanger), Kim Moser (R-Taylor Mill), and Sal Santoro (R-Florence) were named among a group of lawmakers who "went to bat" for Chamber issues in the 2019 legislative session.

“During this legislative session and throughout their time in office, Reps. Koenig, Moser, and Santoro have shown strong leadership to help move our state forward,” Kentucky Chamber Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Ashli Watts. “These northern Kentucky legislators are dedicated to addressing the key issues facing Kentucky’s business community.”

  • Rep. Adam Koenig was recognized for sponsoring legislation to legalize wagering on sporting events
  • Rep. Kim Moser sponsored legislation to ban tobacco use on school campuses and a bill to protect patients from misleading advertisements
  • Rep. Sal Santoro sponsored legislation to bring infrastructure investment to Kentucky.

In addition to monitoring the progress of bills that create a better business climate and advance the commonwealth, the Chamber tracks how each legislator votes on these bills. The Chamber’s MVP award recipients displayed more than just a business-friendly voting record, but also went out of their way, and at times across party lines, to support or oppose an issue critical to the business climate in Kentucky, the Chamber said in a news release.
