Kentucky Physicians Political Action Committee (KPPAC), KMA’s political action arm, increases the medical community’s impact on the makeup of the Kentucky General Assembly. Through candidate contributions, KPPAC strives to elect pro-medicine legislators who understand the importance of a strong medical community.
KPPAC is funded through contributions from KMA members and can accept contributions in any amount up to $2,000. Therefore, YOU are the key to KPPAC’s success.

KPPAC 100 is a program designed to promote physician leadership and develop KPPAC into a $100,000 PAC. All contributions will go toward the $100,000 goal. Individuals who contribute or fundraise at least $1,000 will be recognized as a KPPAC 100 member and receive a special pin. By joining this effort, physicians will amplify their voice in the election process, assist in electing pro-medicine candidates, and have a greater impact on the practice of medicine.

Know Your Legislator
In an effort to help physicians in Kentucky know and contact their legislators, KPPAC would like to share a few simple tools. Below are links to Kentucky’s Senate and House of Representatives members. This is a quick reference to help physicians identify their legislators.
Once you have identified your legislators, know how to contact them. The Kentucky Legislative Research Commission (LRC) lists important information about each legislator, including contact information. Here is a link to LRC website.
