2018 Kentucky Law Changes

Published on Apr 25, 2018 at 5:35 pm in Law and Information.

Though 2018 is only a portion of the way through, there have been a few significant law changes we’ve seen in the state of Kentucky that will impact many residents. Many of these were decided upon during the Kentucky General Assembly’s 2018 regular session and will begin to take effect in July 2018.

Here are some of the largest law changes and new bills we’ve seen pass in Kentucky during the first quarter of 2018 along with brief summaries of each change:

Pension Reform Bill:

In late March, Kentucky Republicans passed a controversial pension reform bill that affects teachers and other educators. It will force future Kentucky state teachers to receive pension benefits that are part of a hybrid cash balance plan with features of both a traditional pension plan and a 401k-style savings plan.

Could More Used Cars on the Road Mean More Accidents?

According to a recent article in USA Today, automobile sales are on the decline. This is the first year this has happened since the Great Recession. Some attribute the decline to a higher starting price for new vehicles, thinking that more technology and standard features is costing customers more than they can afford. Others say it is because more people are buying nice used cars that have previously been leased or dealer owned.

If the purchase of new vehicles is declining and the purchase of used vehicles is increasing, more used vehicles are on the road than ever before. What does this say for driver safety? Are used cars more likely to cause an accident?

Louisville Brewery Review: Mile Wide Beer Co.

Published on Mar 27, 2018 at 2:47 pm in Consuming Louisville.

When it comes to drinks and spirits, everyone knows that Louisville is best known for its delicious bourbon, but the city is also home to some of the best breweries and microbreweries around. Our very own Tad Thomas recently had the pleasure of touring one such brewery– Mile Wide Beer Co. in Louisville. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk about his experience for Consuming Louisville.

Mile Wide Beer Co. is a brewery and taproom located in between Highlands and downtown Louisville, in a building that was once home to Louisville’s first brewpub. All of Mile Wide’s beer is brewed right on the premises and served on tap in bars and restaurants across Kentucky. The brewery magic happens in a production space surrounded with glass– for your viewing pleasure– in a system capable of brewing 3,800 pints of beer at a time.
