After a Kentucky Supreme Court decision threw Historical Horse Racing into jeopardy, industry executives and legislative leadership looked to HCM Governmental Relations for a solution. The expert team played a major role in the first gambling-related legislation in state history to protect 8,000 jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in investments.
Making Your Priority a National Agenda Item
When Ellis Park and Red Mile were excluded from the federal Paycheck Protection Program, HCM Governmental Relations relentlessly engaged with leaders in both the U.S. House and Senate. Their advocacy led to major new federal guidance specifically including Kentucky’s signature racing industry in the job-saving program.
Crossing the Finish Line
Alltech executives called on HCM Governmental Relations to champion legislation to increase its annual production capacity for brewing and to allow additional on-site sales. Following the law’s enactment, Alltech invested more than $10 million into a brand new a 30,000-square foot brewery and distillery in Pikeville and created 30 jobs.
