UPDATED: Republican candidate for governor David Williams wants to allow county voters to decide on controversial issues regarding union as part of his plans for economic reforms in Kentucky.
Williams unveiled a broad plan that includes pushing for legislation to allow local option votes on right to work policies and eliminating the prevailing wage rates on construction of government and school buildings.
Those policies are in addition to a host of tax changes Williams has proposed, including eliminating the personal and corporate income tax.
