Frankfort, Ky. (April 8, 2022) – The Republican Party of Kentucky issued the following statement after Governor Beshear vetoed House Bill 8, which cut the income tax for Kentuckians.
“With the highest inflation rate since 1982, Kentucky Republicans led the charge in cutting the income tax rate to deliver relief to Kentucky workers and families. Andy Beshear vetoed that relief,” RPK spokesperson Sean Southard said. “At a time when Kentuckians are facing historic inflation and the state coffers are brimming with money, Andy Beshear believes your money belongs to him. Kentucky Republicans believe your money belongs to you.”
