Should Kentucky allow the development of high volume hydraulic fracking for oil and gas or should we ban it like other states and municipalities have? If it’s going to be allowed, how should it be controlled so as to minimize damage to workers, neighbors, water, air and land? Or are those concerns even of any consequence?
The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet wants to hear the public’s views on those issues at three public hearing to take place in July. The input will be compiled for an oil and gas “working group” that was formed in 2014 to advise the cabinet on oil and gas development, including fracking.
KFTC has a powerful vision for change in Kentucky. We believe we are in a political and economic moment where we have huge opportunities to bring Kentuckians together across lines of difference. We can find where our interests meet, intersect, and build a movement from that place of where we all come together. From values-based conversations about our future, to building large, diverse coalitions, there is much work to be done. Join us at KFTC's annual meeting weekend to help figure out how to build a social movement in Kentucky that is 'All In.'
KFTC’s statewide Annual Membership Meeting will be held August 21 through August 23 this year at the General Butler State Park in Carrollton.
Opening the door to clean energy opportunities in Kentucky depends on passing good energy legislation in our General Assembly.
Along with our partners in the Kentucky Sustainable Energy Alliance (KySEA), we support the Clean Energy Opportunity Act, expanding Kentucky's net metering law, and expanding energy efficiency and renewable energy in our schools, called the Kentucky Green Schools Initiative.
