KRC provides 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 Center for Environmental Policy, we focus on development of proactive policies and proposed laws and ordinances to promote healthy communities and a healthy environment in Kentucky.
