FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A bill intended to help veterans start businesses in Kentucky by waiving registration fees will head to the state House of Representatives.

House Committee on Veterans, Military Affairs, and Public Safety approved the bill Wednesday.

The “Boots to Business” initiative, sponsored by Rep. Jody Richards, of Bowling Green, would waive the initial registration fees for new veteran-owned business and the annual report filing fees for the first four years.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, who proposed the measure and touted it before the committee Wednesday, wrote in a statement that it is intended to help veterans transition back into civilian life.
