Kentucky Department of Agriculture shuts down fuel lab, saving up to $600,000

Private lab will test motor fuel for Kentucky

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture will contract with a private fuel testing laboratory to test motor fuel samples and will shut down its motor fuel and pesticide testing lab in Frankfort, Agriculture Commissioner James Comer announced.

“We will save the taxpayers as much as $600,000 after we finish decommissioning this facility,” Commissioner Comer said. “We will continue to test motor fuel samples at random and respond to consumer complaints. Kentucky consumers will not be affected by this action.”
