Frankfort, Kentucky, March 5, 2020 — 10XTS is pleased to announce the passage of Kentucky Senate Bill 55 to establish a blockchain working group at the state level for further exploration and advancement of the technology. The bill was forwarded by State Senator Brandon Smith (Senate District 30) and passed 35-0 with no opposition.
Dr. Brian Houillion, 10XTS Advisor & SVP led the advisory effort along with 10XTS partner, Adam Koehler, CEO CPROP. The bill creates a new section of KRS Chapter 42 to create a six-member Blockchain Technology Working Group; attach the working group to the Commonwealth Office of Technology; and requires the working group to examine the applicability of blockchain technology for various utility sectors and report to the Governor and the LRC by December 1 of each year.
