Request for Comments/Input
The Commonwealth of Kentucky will develop and submit a mitigation plan to the Settlement Trustee that summarizes how Kentucky plans to use the funds. Eligible mitigation projects can be found in Appendix D2 of the Settlement.
The Energy and Environment Cabinet is outlining the process for developing Kentucky’s mitigation plan. In 2017 the EEC will conduct public outreach briefings about the Settlement, and will provide an opportunity for the public to comment on how the mitigation funds should be spent in Kentucky. Watch this web page for updates on the process as they become available.
The Energy and Environment Cabinet has developed an electronic form to allow Kentuckians an easy way to submit comments regarding the state’s utilization of environmental mitigation trust fund monies associated with the VW diesel settlement. All comments are received by the Energy and Environment Cabinet Department for Energy Development and Independence for review. Comments submitted are for the purpose of gathering initial input on how these funds should be used.
