Freedom Index of the states released

How free is Kentucky? A new study seeks to answer that question in all 50 states.

Today the Mercatus Center released a comprehensive study of the economic and personal of the states. You can read the report here and tune in online tomorrow, June 8 at 4 pm EDT, for a policy forum featuring the report's authors.

Kentucky's overall index rating placed us 32nd in the nation; the commonwealth was categorized as one of the least free states in the country.

Do these results come as a surprise to you?
