Government Advocacy

The Chamber serves as the voice of its members on key legislative and regulatory issues in Northern Kentucky, Frankfort and Washington D.C. Each year, we identify legislative issues affecting our members. Once issues are identified, policy development committees analyze and evaluate the issues and the potential impact on businesses. As a member, there are many opportunities to access legislators and key government officials, to get involved and build relationships.

Northern Kentucky Consensus Committee

In 1989, members of the Northern Kentucky Caucus asked that our region develop a prioritized list of capital projects that they could take to Frankfort and lobby for on our behalf. Prior to that, every city, county, and organization tended to only work on their own projects which put us at a disadvantage relative to other parts of the state. From this request, the Northern Kentucky Consensus Committee was formed. Since then, every other year, prior to the budget session of the Kentucky General Assembly, the NKY Consensus Committee has solicited input to identify and prioritize capital construction projects for the area represented by the Northern Kentucky Area Development District.  

To submit an application for a capital project: click here to download the PDF, open the file in Adobe Reader, use the Fill & Sign Tool to fill out the requested information, and send the completed file to Kristin Baldwin at kbaldwin@nkychamber.com. Applications are due on Monday, August 21st.
