Saturday, March 13th, 2010; 6 - 8 p.m.

Our environment matters; and humans have an impact on it. KY lobbying warrior, Tom Fitzgerald, will describe what just happened in the recent quest in Frankfort to make our society and earth a better place. As the Executive Director of Kentucky Resources Council (http://kyrc.org), Tom will report whether Kentucky lawmakers moved the needle in a positive direction. Come and find out. Tom has periodically spoken at Sierra Club and EarthSave gatherings for quite some time--and he speaks again at just the right time. Come with questions and a pen to write down actions to take. Will the legislators really fix mountain-top removal? Will they accelerate green technology?

Things look really steamy right now, according to a recent proposal to de-regulate farm animal husbandry conditions in KY. "Do whatever you folks want to do" is about to be passed. But then again, "sustainable agriculture" might be officially recognized in another bill. Will "burgoo" be voted as the new official state food?

T. Fitzgerald, JD, controls the http://www.kyrc.org website; do your prep web-surfing work if you wish to be better prepared --to keep apace.
