The Central Kentucky Regional Public Policy Group attended the annual Washington Fly-In, July 8-9. The trip, in its fifth year under the current format, takes place every July with a diverse group of elected officials, business, education and non-profit leaders traveling to Washington to advocate on behalf of Central Kentucky projects. The Central Kentucky Washington Fly-In is unique in its format, because it allows Central Kentucky leaders to meet with all six Kentucky Congressmen and both U.S. Senators over a two-day period.
