With nearly $6.8 billion in corporate investments this year, Kentucky shatters all-time record

Since Gov. Matt Bevin stood in front of the Capitol this spring and announced a record-shattering corporate-investment high for Kentucky, the state attracted another $1 billion-plus in new projects, which rocketed this year’s planned investments to nearly $6.8 billion.

Halfway through 2017, the state far outpaced its previous, full-year record from 2015 of $5.1 billion in new corporate investment. The 87 individual corporate projects also put Kentucky on pace this year to create the greatest number of new jobs in a decade. Through June, nearly 10,500 new jobs have been announced. And the numbers for both jobs and investment are increasing daily.
