Support a Just Transition for Coal Communities

 

The RECLAIM Act would help communities struggling with the decline of the coal industry to make a just transition by disbursing $1 billion over five years from the federal Abandoned Mine Lands fund.

Call Senators McConnell & Paul today to stop the latest ACA repeal bill in its tracks

From Kentucky Voices for Health

While some Senators are engaging in positive, bipartisan talks to stabilize the ACA marketplaces, proponents of Graham-Cassidy are trying to force a vote on repeal before the end of September (when current budget rules expire that allow the Senate to pass a repeal bill with just 50 votes, plus a tie-breaking vote from the Vice President).

The Graham-Cassidy bill is just as bad as all of the previous repeal efforts, if not worse.

Protect our families and communities; defend DACA youth

KFTC is guided by our vision for Kentucky, which includes our own dream of working for a day, “when discrimination is wiped out of our laws, habits and hearts.” And yet we are reminded daily of the discrimination that many Kentuckians face, including new immigrants.

DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – is an Obama administration program that allows undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children to apply to stay in the country while they pursue their education or employment.

Stop unfair monthly service fee hikes by LG&E and KU

Benham Power Project -- March 2014

Louisville Gas & Electric and Kentucky Utilities are proposing unfair new rates that will hurt customers, especially low-income people, and damage our health and air quality.

LG&E and KU want to double their flat monthly service charge, the fee that people pay no matter how much energy they use. The base rate for KU’s electric service would climb from $10.75 to $22 per month. The monthly fee for LG&E’s electric service would also jump from $10.75 to $22, and the charge for natural gas service would climb from $13.50 to $24. That means most of LG&E’s residential customers will owe a minimum of $46 a month – even if they use no gas or electricity whatsoever!

Support Health Care for All - Call today!

Kentuckians deserve affordable, quality health care. But Republican legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is about tax cuts for the wealthy – not health care. Calls to Senators Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell are needed right away.

Protect Kentucky's gains under the Affordable Care Act

Everyone should have affordable, quality health care – a message that was loud and clear in Kentucky’s town hall events last month with members of Congress. Despite those messages and calls, Congressional Republicans have proposed legislation that not only would dismantle the Affordable Care Act, but also Medicaid as we know it.
