A Stronger Voice for the Environment?

Rumors have floated around Frankfort and the environmental community of late that there is a move afoot within at least the House side of the Kentucky Legislature to form an environmental lobby ( a group of legislators who are concerned with the state of Kentucky’s environment and vote as a block on environmental issues). If this it’s true it ‘s a good sign for the Commonwealth. The coal, chemical and industrial farming industries haveĀ  enjoyed strong legislative support for a long time in this State while environmental interests have slogged along relying on the untiring efforts of a few groups such as the Kentucky Resources Council ( Tom Fitzgerald’s group), the Kentuckians for the Commonwealth and The KCC. KCC will follow the progress of any move in this direction with great interest and will encourage it as best we can. Stay tuned!
