Beshear Says Education Is Top Priority for Session
Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear says he wants to pump more money into education and is willing to make budget cuts elsewhere to free up the money.
Beshear talked to reporters at the Capitol on Tuesday about his priorities for the upcoming legislative session. The governor says education is his top priority and that the state risks losing its progress in education unless it reinvests money in schools.
Beshear didn't mention any specifics about possible budget cuts but said "everything is on the table."
The governor also says he'll urge lawmakers to consider expanded gambling and estate tax overhaul in the General Assembly session that begins in January.
