Gov. Beshear to make major economic announcement Wednesday
12 Apr 2022
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Governor Andy Beshear is teasing a major economic announcement on Wednesday morning, calling it a “historic investment.”
The governor said it will produce thousands of jobs, and solidify Kentucky’s leading role in an emerging industry. Whatever the announcement is, it comes just over six months after the Ford battery plant announcement.
That development was a $6 billion investment. It’s the single largest in Kentucky’s economy, and is set to bring 5,000 jobs. Governor Beshear said then it was making Kentucky the global leader in the electric vehicle market.
