  • Rand provides update on Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement

    The landmark 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement has brought hundreds of millions of dollars to the Commonwealth over the past two decades. I keep up with how that money is spent—in agriculture, health care and early childhood education, as appropriated—and thought you’d enjoy an update, too.

    I was particularly interested to learn that a Kentucky-based company looking to process the fiber of around 750 acres of hemp and the jute-like plant kenaf has been approved for $381,500 in state tobacco funds to expand its processing facility.

However, students at Carroll County High School are finding their voice and learning how to develop their own opinions.

  • McConnell traveled throughout state to listen to concerns of citizens, leaders

    As a Senator, my job requires that I spend many hours in Washington, but Kentucky is my home and I make it a priority to be in the state when the Senate is not in session. Over the last two weeks, the Senate was not in session so I decided to again travel throughout the Commonwealth as I often do.  Not only is this a great way to engage with Kentuckians from every corner of the state, but it’s also a great way to ensure I can continue my work most effectively as Kentucky’s voice in the Senate.
