Kentuckians For Better Transportation (KBT) organizes an annual trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with Kentucky’s Congressional Delegation. After several years off due to COVID, we are excited to once again visit with you in our nation’s Capital and advocate for a robust multi-modal transportation network in Kentucky.
