“The idea of an energy incentive package began three years ago with our energy forums across the state and was part of our comprehensive energy strategy.

In addition to potentially bringing thousands of jobs and billions of dollars of investment, this Energy Bill will place Kentucky at the forefront of the national movement to develop alternative energy sources.

I want to thank members of the House and Senate who voted for the Energy Bill.  I am extremely pleased.”

A bill signing is being planned for next week.
