Pension, Tax Reforms Discussed at Equine Conference

Oct 17, 2017

Legislative efforts to resolve Kentucky's public pension problems got attention at Monday’s Kentucky Equine Education Project Conference in Lexington. 

A panel discussion on equine taxation and legislation included comments from Jay Ingle, an attorney who’s worked for horse-related clients for years.

A long time leader of an equine association says Kentucky Thoroughbred breeders could benefit from an extension in immigrant guest worker visas.  David Switzer, Director of the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association, participated in the "Day of Action for Immigration Reform" Wednesday.   Switzer says his group would like to see a new type of visa that would lengthen seasonal time for the workers to three years.  “Then they can return home, spend a year back and home and then possible qualify to come back for another three years," said Switzer.
