KY House Passes Two-Year State Budget

The Kentucky House overwhelmingly passed its version of a new two-year state budget Friday, but some lawmakers said the unwillingness to tap into more revenue sources would shortchange many of the state’s pressing funding needs.

The GOP-crafted spending plan drew bipartisan support in clearing the House 86-10, even though it dialed back spending on some of Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear’s priorities.

It now goes to the Republican-dominated Senate, which will put its imprint on the budget. The differences will likely be ironed out by legislative leaders in a conference committee.
