Four Pillars for Prosperity Plan

In 2019, the Kentucky Chamber updated its strategic plan, Four Pillars for Prosperity, with a focus on the state’s economy and job creation. In recent years we’ve seen progress on many key business priorities, but there is still more work to be done.

The Kentucky Chamber’s 2020 Legislative Agenda builds upon the framework set by Four Pillars for Prosperity and outlines the business community’s top legislative priorities for the 2020 session of the Kentucky General Assembly. These priorities will help chart a path toward a more competitive Kentucky.


The goal outlined in Four Pillars for Prosperity are:

A Healthy, Educated & Skilled Workforce

We must create a globally competitive talent development system that produces a healthy, educated and skilled workforce, benchmarked against the best education and workforce preparation systems in the world.

Quality, Knowledge-Based Jobs

We must enhance Kentucky’s competitive business environment and implement economic development initiatives that recognize the potential of Kentucky’s distinct regions and industry sectors while encouraging knowledge-based entrepreneurship and innovation.

21st Century Infrastructure

We must create and maintain a modern infrastructure to capitalize on the state’s strategic advantages, including low-cost energy and central location.

Effective & Efficient Government

We must create and sustain an effective and efficient system of state and local governments that are financially stable, that invest in education to improve prospects for the future and create a competitive environment for economic growth.
