$30 million earmarked for Pennyrile Region natural gas pipeline construction

GUTHRIE, Ky. — $30 million in funding was presented to help the southern Pennyrile Region build a critical natural gas pipeline to support rapid business growth.

The new line will extend roughly 50 miles through Christian, Todd and Trigg counties and have the capacity to serve Caldwell and Lyon counties. The route will open a large, underserved area of Western Kentucky for industrial development.

Thanks to the recommendation of Rep. Jason Petrie of Elkton, lawmakers passed – and the Governor signed – House Bill 1, which allocates $30 million over the next two years, $15 million this fiscal year and $15 million next fiscal year, to help build a new pipeline that will serve the counties.
