Hopefully all Kentucky Inspectors will email their respective Representatives in support of this bill. If Kentucky Inspectors need contact information, please feel free to contact me.

I have another trip planned for later this month or early March to meet and greet the House members, much the same way NACHI did with the Kentucky Senate.

As a point of interest:

NACHI members in Kentucky - 87
ASHI members in Kentucky - about 20
NAHI members in Kentucky - about 20
KREIA members in Kentucky (made up of Independents and National Association members) - about 80.

Go here to find your Kentucky Representative. Tell them what you think. You can find them by name, county, or district. A contact form is provided for most though some provide an e-mail address.
