Kentucky Green Schools Caucus

Established in February 2010 by unanimous votes in both the House and the Senate, the Kentucky Green Schools Caucus is fostering important dialogue on green schools in the legislature in a state that is already leading the way through its Kentucky Energy Efficiency Program for Schools (KEEPS) as well as the first “net-zero” energy school in the nation.
