CAP & KTG Scholarship Lobbying
We knew we still had work after our Powerball Promise campaign, since a line-item veto by the governor prevented all $55 million from being allocated towards CAP and KTG scholarships. In the 2019 legislative session our team advocated to ensure those scholarships continued to be funded. Though it wasn’t a budgetary year, we pushed to continue the policy where excess lottery funds continued to be allocated towards the need-based scholarships.
Ultimately, our advocacy in Frankfort was successful, and the policy was continued.
