|HJR8||Oppose||K. Bratcher||A joint resolution declaring state sovereignty over powers not given to the federal government by the United States Constitution (already required) and demands that the federal government cease mandates beyond constitutionally delegated powers (already required). If passed, could have negative impacts on federal regulation implemented in Kentucky, especially environmental regulations.|| 1/3/17 introduced in House, to State Government,2/7/17
|HR9||Oppose||T. Couch||Urge the USEPA to prioritize compliance assistance over current enforcement practices. While KCC believes more work could be done to promote environmental compliance, the statements made in the preamble of the bill are inaccurate with regards to the influence of environmental regulation on the coal industry.||1/3/17 introduced in House, to Nat. Resources & Energy Committee, 2/16 Favorable First reading; 2/17 Second Reading, to Rules, 2/22 passed 3rd reading 80-15|
|HCR13||Oppose||W. Wells||Concurrent resolution calling on U.S. Congress to convene an Article V convention of the states to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution imposing fiscal restraints on the federal government. KCC opposes because it could have a detrimental impact on how environmental and conservation programs are funded and curtail federal dollars coming to Kentucky.||1/3/17 introduced in House; to State Government (H); 2/24 reassigned to Elections, Const. Amendments & Intergovernmental Affairs (H); 3/2 posted in committee|
|HB 18/LM||Monitor||S. Westrom||Calls for greater legislative oversight over how state dollars are used in Area Development Districts. There are 15 ADDs in Kentucky that work on a regional level to promote workforce and economic development needs, health care and aging services, broadband palnning, transportation planning, and infrastructure planning, among others. This bill is in response to conflicts found by the state auditor in governance of the Bluegrass ADD.||1/3/17 introduced in House; to State Government (H)
|HR18||Oppose||T. Couch||Urge the US Congress to enact economic incentives and tax relief for certain counties in the Commonwealth. However, the resolution states, “Due to their decades of service in the mines of Southeastern Kentucky providing cheap energy for the good of the United States.” While Kentucky’s rates are lower than much of the United States, those rates did not include the costs of externalities from coal extraction, processing, and burning.||1/3/17 Introduced in House,

A public benefit corporation must be managed in a manner that balances the pecuniary interests of the stockholders, the best interests of those materially affected by the corporation’s conduct, and the specific public benefit or public benefits identified in its articles of incorporation. Thus, the fiduciary obligation of the board is not just to its shareholders, but also to those affected by the corporations conduct and the public benefit the corporation provides.||Signed into Law by Governor on 3/20||Amended,
HCS1, adds annual reporting
|HB37||Strongly Oppose||✔||T. Couch

|HB72||Strongly Oppose||✔||J. Miller||HB 72 requires a bond for appeals of Circuit Court decisions for zoning cases before the case is transferred to the Kentucky Court of Appeals. The House version has an exemption for churches. The version passed out of the Senate State and Local Committee has an exemption for landfills. The bill, in both versions, is poorly drafted, runs afoul of many Kentucky Constitutional provisions, and puts an unfair burden on those with meritorious claims against poor planning and zoning decisions.||As of 3/15/17, posted for passage for concurrence in Senate Committee Substitute and floor amendment (1); House refused to concur in Senate Committee Substitute and floor amendment (1); received in Senate.||HCS1 Committee Sub requires court to determine if an appeal is frivolous when determining bond.

|HB90||Strongly Oppose||✔||G. Watkins||Similar to SB 11, would remove current prohibition on licensing of nuclear power plants until a permanent waste disposal strategy is in place, and instead allow the construction and operation of a nuclear facility where a facility has a “storage” plan for the waste. This means that the radioactive wastes that have a half-life of thousands of years can be stored on site without a permanent disposal strategy in place.||1/3/17 introduced in House; to House Natural Resources & Energy (H)|
|HB107||Strongly Oppose||✔||J. Fischer||Prohibits a sanitation district’s (such as Louisville MSD or SD1 in Northern Kentucky) authority to charge ratepayers for so-called “indirect” or “imputed” benefits. If passed, this bill will have a devastating impact on a sewer district’s ability to promote and fund green infrastructure projects across the district. Green infrastructure can have greater impacts and be cheaper than outdated gray built infrastructure methods of storm water control and also has a positive impact on biodiversity and conservation.||1/3/17 introduced in House; 1/6 to Local Gov.|
