Daviess County Democratic Party

At roughly 10:50 p.m. last night, on the second-to-last day of the legislative session, the Kentucky House of Representatives passed bad solar bill SB 100, without the good House amendment.

During the vote, several legislators spoke to the sheer volume of calls/emails they received in opposition to SB 100. One even noted that he had to vote against the unamended bill because, unlike all the communications he had gotten in favor of the bill from utilities and paid lobbyists, the calls and emails he'd received in opposition to it were from constituents, and ordinary Kentuckians.

We know whose interests won out last night. But we also know the huge impact that the champions of safe, good-paying jobs and clean, affordable energy had on this fight. We are the reason this bill, which was intended to be railroaded through three weeks ago, stalled for so long. We are also the reason the bill failed the two previous years and why utilities worked so hard to ram it through this time around.

We are proud of the work we've done, and determined to keep fighting for clean, affordable energy for all Kentuckians. As the bill moves to the governor's desk to be signed into law, please make sure you send him an email at governor.ky.gov/contact, or a voicemail at 502-563-2611, to let him know what a mistake it would be to sign off on this job-killing, pro-monopoly bill.

Then, let's make energy a central election issue for 2019 and 2020, and vote these utility-backed elected officials right out of office.
