By Mark Green Mark Green: In 2017, Kentucky had $9.2 billion in economic development announcements tied to state incentives, by far the best year ever. How much of that do you attribute to circumstances outside of state policy, and how much should be attributed to the intentional work of your administration, economic development officials and policy changes? Matt Bevin: Given the fact that our previous best year ever in the history of Kentucky was $5.1 billion, I would attribute the vast majority of that success to the proactive efforts of the administration and to the incredible people we have at every level. We’ve just plain out-hustled other people for some of these big deals. This has not happened by accident. We’re growing faster than almost anybody on a per capita basis in terms of capital attracted. The reason is that we are just out-working people. We’re hungry for business, and we’re letting people know it. We’re traveling around the country, … [Read more...] about One-on-One: Gov.
