On Tuesday, Jan. 17, legislators heard from the governor. Gov. Steve Beshear presents his budget proposal to the General Assembly.
As I have reported in the past, our budget situation is serious and while the General Assembly directed cost-cutting measures and other efficiencies such as reducing personal service contracts and merit employees (those who are politically appointed) in the budget, the Governor vetoed those measures. Now, he will issue his solution to our state’s budget problems.
