Beshear: More Than 1,200 New Jobs and Nearly $292 Million in Investments Announced This Week


Gov. Andy Beshear announced the creation of more than 1,200 jobs and $291.8 million in investments by businesses across Kentucky during the last full week of the month.

“Companies across the country and around the world have recognized what we’ve known all along – that Kentucky is the place to be,” said Gov. Beshear. “We’ve already broken every record in the books for economic development, but the news we’ve announced this month – just this week even – is further proof that we are just getting started.”

2021 saw Kentucky shatter every economic development record in the books with $11.2 billion in investments announced for private-sector new-location and expansion projects and commitments to create more than 18,000 full-time jobs in coming years.


  1. Ky is the place to be for big corporate companies. They get huge tax breaks while the government make the people pay taxes on there property they already paid taxes on. Now they’re going to raise your property tax even more on your land and vehicles. School taxes have trippled a well but the teachers and staff get nothing.
    Kentucky is the best
