WASHINGTON – Heritage Action, a conservative grassroots organization with two million grassroots activists, including thousands of Kentuckians, released the following statement from Janae Stracke, Vice President of Field Operations, calling on Governor Beshear to sign HB 236 into law and protect workers and families from dangerous ESG policies.
“HB 236 is common-sense legislation that would require asset managers to uphold their fiduciary duties and prioritize the investment returns and financial interests of Kentuckians. Especially while the Left attempts to implement ESG policies at all levels of government and use taxpayer dollars to fund their progressive political agendas, this important legislation is key to defending workers and job-creating industries in the state.
Thanks to the General Assembly’s passage of HB 236, Kentucky is on track to add to the growing number of states taking decisive action to protect their state taxpayer dollars, investments, and pensions. Governor Beshear should quickly sign this bill into law to show he is willing to stand up for citizens and their financial futures. Heritage Action looks forward to continuing our work alongside grassroots Kentuckians to help get this legislation across the finish line."
