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.
Each week when the General Assembly is in session, KRC posts and updates a list and description of the bills and resolutions we're supporting, opposing, and tracking. This list is complete through end of day March 1, 2024.
In written comments, KRC Attorney Audrey Ernstberger shared concerns on parts of HB 563 providing a significant role for a non-governmental organization including rural water systems, in the selection of loans to troubled rural water systems.
In written comments on House Bill 478, KRC Staff Attorney Audrey Ernstberger shared KRC concerns with allowing the doubling of size of construction/demolition landfills lacking liners and groundwater monitoring.
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.
