What is KAPAC?

The Kentucky Agents Political Action Committee is a state political action committee that supports candidates in Kentucky who serve in Frankfort.

The Kentucky Agents Political Action Committee was established to support the advocacy efforts of IIAK's government affairs program, by raising money to contribute to candidates in a non-partisan spirit.  It is a way for independent agents to be involved in the political process, support candidates and make our voices heard through the halls of Frankfort and our issues and concerns visible to our legislators.

Why have KAPAC?

The law prohibits our association from making political contributions.  And collectively, we can give to more candidates and have a stronger voice through KAPAC.  Also, keep in mind that campaigns are expensive, we've all heard that more than once.  And political action committees are an important source of campaign funding.

Why do I need to give to KAPAC?    

The insurance industry is one of the most highly regulated industries in the country.   Actions by state government affect our livelihoods every day.

What types of government actions affect agents?    

There are so many it is impossible to mention them all. But in Frankfort, legislators are dealing with changes in workers' compensation insurance, health insurance, and automobile insurance.   In addition, they have made changes to agent licensing laws.

Who does KAPAC contribute to?    

KAPAC makes contributions on a non-partisan basis.   They give to candidates who we believe will be open to supporting our point of view.  They also contribute to campaigns to assure we will be able to present the independent agents' interests and knowledge when it is needed to protect our customers and the independent agent.
