Now's the time for KY lawmakers to stand and demand their voice be heard!! Many of you have sold us out in the past, but know is the time to show that you do care about the current situation of this state and it's need to protect one of her signature industries from a gvnmt that's run out of ideas on how to fix it's own problems.

Distilling is still one of the things America does better than anyone else.
