Adams: waive red tape on out-of-state businesses helping us with tornado recovery
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Secretary of State Michael Adams announced his office is easing up on restrictions on out-of-state businesses helping western Kentucky with tornado relief and recovery efforts.
“I’m taking action to waive red tape on out-of-state businesses helping us with tornado recovery,” said Adams. “We will do all we can to help Western Kentucky recover and rebuild as quickly as possible.”
According to the Kentucky Certificate of Authority, companies are required to register with the Kentucky Secretary of State before doing business in Kentucky. Operating without a certificate of authority may result in penalties or fines. In addition to the state’s requirements, licensing agencies, banks, and vendors will often request a certificate of authority.
According to Adams, “This action makes it easier for our out-of-state neighbors to partner with us toward that goal.”
Earlier this week, Secretary Adams visited Ohio County, KY to tour damage following the deadly tornadoes.
Adams shared a video on Twitter, saying, “I visited Ohio County, which hasn’t gotten much attention but lost many homes and farms. The community have come together, but they need our help.”
An address was shared for donations to be sent to:
Beaver Dam Foundation Tornado Relief
P.O. Box 408
Beaver Dam, KY 42320
