(2) In carrying out the purposes of KRS 154.50-020 to 154.50-030, and in providing for the expenditure of funds to industrial entities which are appropriated by the General <br>Assembly to assist in the implementation of an industrial improvement project, the <br>cabinet may determine the amount of monetary assistance to be provided by <br>reference to any formula or other objective standard which is based on target levels <br>of employment, projected interest rates or other financing costs, projected levels of <br>investment by the industrial entity or any other objective criteria deemed <br>appropriate by the cabinet under the circumstances.

The industrial improvement project is separately approved in writing by <br>the Governor; 3. The industrial improvement project is separately approved by the <br>General Assembly; and 4.

(b) It is hereby determined and declared as a legislative finding of fact that the provisions and requirements of paragraph (a) of this subsection provide for the <br>receipt by the Commonwealth of fair market value for any monetary <br>assistance provided pursuant to KRS 154.50-020 to 154.50-030.
