Thank you Jenn and Karen for this info!!

Just to clarify WHO to contact on this, this is a KY State House Bill, you should
contact your state representative AND your state senator. If you are not sure who they
are, you can go to www.louisvilleky.gov and input your zip code. It will tell you who
all your government officials are for your area. This is very important move against BSL.

Another link for Kentuckians to enter their address and find out their representative and senator is

After you enter your addy, the page that comes up will tell you where to vote.
Go to the top of the page, about the middle and it will say "contact state legislators."
Click that button and you will get the names and e-mail addys of state reps.
