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.
Governor Beshear vetoed several bills last week, including several opposed by KRC: HB 4, SB 150, SB 226 and SB 126. The General Assembly reconvenes later this week and may vote by a simple majority (51 in House, 20 in Senate) to override the vetoes,
We at the Council are continuing to track environmental, conservation, consumer, energy, and general government bills and resolutions. We also publish this notice on our website weekly throughout the Session with updates on the bills...
There's only 6 legislative days remaining in the 2023 General Assembly and there are bills that need YOUR voice. Call today to oppose SB 226 and HB 4.
Please act this weekend. Without your voice of opposition this bill could be voted on by the house early next week!
We imagine a Kentucky where the air is clean, the water safe, and where nature and natural resources are safeguarded and not abused.
