It’s Friday – time to take some action, make that call, and let your voice be heard! Let your legislators hear you about these bills in KYGA17!

Take a moment today to call the LRC message line at 800-372-7181 and leave this message for “All Senators“:

Vote NO on HB214, the “Let’s Kneecap Solar Power in Kentucky” bill. Read this article to learn more.

Vote NO on HB72, the “Pricetag on Justice” bill. Read this article to learn more.

Vote NO on HB202, part of the “War on Louisville” bills. This is the one that lets the Governor appoint the Mayor and the council members. You can read more in today’s News Roundup.

Vote NO on HB151, the “Resegregate JCPS and Cause Chaos” bill. This bill tosses the whole school assignment process into the air, and will further resegregate the schools and cause headaches for everyone involved.

And finally, Say No to Charters. (But you already knew that, because YOU read Forward Kentucky, right? <g>)
