The Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform launched a website this week to provide information about the commission process and ways for everyday Kentuckians to get involved. The commission has been tasked with recommending changes to Kentucky’s tax code by mid-November, after studying the state tax system and reviewing input from the public and interested parties.

The website includes the schedule of commission meetings (the first was held on Tuesday), which are open to the public:
