2010 ACE: Silver
Modernizing state government emerged as a goal for the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce in its 2007 New Agenda for Kentucky initiative. One key to achieving that goal emerged as an imperative: identifying trends in state spending to determine whether tax dollars are being invested in areas that ensure future prosperity. That was the focus of state spending research commissioned by the Chamber in 2009 – research that found that three major areas of unsustainable spending – Medicaid, corrections and public employee health benefits – were taking money away from education and other key programs. With education being the top public policy priority for Kentucky’s business community, the Chamber began a year-long campaign to raise lawmaker and public awareness of The Leaky Bucket of state spending and its negative implications for the future.
The Leaky Bucket campaign was anchored by research detailing spending trends in Kentucky and the state’s relative position in the nation. A reader-friendly document, with a cover illustration of a leaking water bucket, was distributed statewide – to Chamber members, state legislators, opinion leaders, news reporters and others – and the message was promoted through speeches and press conferences across the state.
