We posted yesterday that the Mercatus Center has released its annual freedom index of the states.
Among their recommendations for Kentucky: repeal prevailing-wage laws and cut spending…
Tighten the rules for municipal-bond issuance and cut spending, particularly on grants to local school districts and employee compensation (repeal the prevailing-wage law), in order to retire debt.
The Bluegrass Institute has long been an advocate of repealing prevailing wage laws.
“Reviewing your student achievement gap, I’m very concerned.”

Today the Mercatus Center released a comprehensive study of the economic and personal of the states. You can read the report here and tune in online tomorrow, June 8 at 4 pm EDT, for a policy forum featuring the report’s authors.
Kentucky’s overall index rating placed us 32nd in the nation; the commonwealth was categorized as one of the least free states in the country.
Do these results come as a surprise to you?
