CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

For 35 years, KRC has provided comprehensive research and analysis  on legislative bills and environmental issues of concern. During legislative sessions, we publish a weekly analysis, produced by our policy team, of bills we are supporting, opposing, and tracking, along with in-depth analysis of bills of particular concern.  We supplement these weekly postings and newsletters with action alerts.

Under the aegis of the new Center for Environmental Policy, we will increase our focus on development of proactive policies and proposed laws and ordinances to promote healthy communities and a healthy environment in Kentucky.
