Action possible Wednesday in the Kentucky Senate
Legislation that will pave the way for large-scale hydraulic fracking in Kentucky is set to be heard by the Senate Natural Resources and Energy Committee tomorrow (Wednesday) at 11 a.m. We need to drum up support for an anticipated amendment that would place a two-year moratorium on “high volume hydraulic fracking.”
ACTION: Please contact members of the Senate tonight or in the morning before 11. You can call their office directly at 502-564-8100 or leave a message through the Legislative Message Line (800-372-7181). If you’d like to email, you can find their email address or online contact form here: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/whoswho/email.htm
MESSAGE: “Please support adding a two-year moratorium on high volume hydraulic fracking to Senate Bill 186, or vote against the bill without the moratorium.”
If you call the message line, ask that your message be delivered to your senator plus “Sen. Jared Carpenter and all senators.” (Sen. Carpenter is chair of the Natural Resources and Energy Committee)
Kentucky's 2015 General Assembly is just around the corner! The 2015 session will be a short (30 day) session, but we are planning to pack a lot of citizen lobbying into that short period of time. Below is a calendar of our upcoming major lobby days and other important dates. Many of the details for our major lobby days are still being worked out, but we will share out additional information as we know more.
