For 35 years, the Kentucky Resources Council has been a trusted source of legal representation, advice, and assistance to individuals, communities, and local governments on a wide range of environmental and energy issues. Accepting no corporate or government money, and providing legal assistance without charge, KRC relies on its members and supporters to enable us to provide unflinching advocacy for those who live "downhill, downwind, and downstream."
Join with us today in advancing our shared values of environmental justice and protection.
Since 1984, KRC has been a trusted resource for comprehensive analysis of energy and environmental issues for citizens, government officials, and non-profit organizations.
We work to ensure individuals and communities impacted by environmental decisions have a voice in the policy-making process at all levels of government, and that values more durable than short-term profit guide public policy.
We believe every Kentuckian has the right to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities. We use the power of the law to secure and advance these essential rights.
What are the applicable state and federal laws concerning hazardous liquid pipelines? Make informed decision in planning and zoning to help keep communities safe.
KRC was proud to join 73 other organizations in commenting in opposition to a proposed EPA rulemaking that would weaken environmental protections associated with the management of coal combustion residuals from coal-fired power plants.
As we have for each legislative session since 1984, we look back on the bills that KRC supported and opposed during the recently ended 2020 General Assembly Regular Session. With apologies to Clint Eastwood, here is The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
We imagine a Kentucky where the air is clean, the water safe, and where nature and natural resources are safeguarded and not abused. Join the movement to help make this shared vision a reality.
