bullet Contact your representative or senator - The KNRC encourages you to personally contact your Representative and Senator and establish a dialogue with them as their constituent. Personal face-to-face contact is always the best, but even an email speaks loudly to them. Let them know you care about clean water, pure air, preservation of our unique habitats and responsible development policies. Let them know you are a KNRC member. Working together we can make a difference.  Their complete contact information - including postal address, phone number and email - may be found by clicking on their name in the House and Senate Rosters.
