The Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition is touring the Commonwealth to promote passage of proposed state House Bill 229, also known as the Clean Energy Opportunity Act.  KSEC representatives, along with State Senator Reggie Thomas, met Thursday at Murray State University with representatives from the Tennessee Valley Authority and members of the region’s renewable energy industry.  

A bill that would require a certain percentage of the state’s energy to come from renewable sources is scheduled for a hearing in the Kentucky House of Representatives tomorrow. The bill has little chance of passage this late in the session, but its advocates are hoping to set the stage for next year.
