Addresses enclosed in case you want to sound off to Kentucky's leadership

Our state's inability to pass a budget is causing uncertainty for many programs and services -- especially those helping disadvantaged children, according to the Kentucky Child Advocacy organization.

What's the problem? The major point of disagreement between the Senate and the House was the insistence to attach the governor's new tax plan to the budget bill. If you're moved to tell them what you think about the budget management, Kentucky's Governor, Representatives and Senators phone numbers and addresses are printed at the end of this article.

Kathleen Hoye, Communications and Outreach Director of the Kentucky Youth Advocates organization, is hoping all Kentuckians who agree with her will send a strong message to our state leadership, stating simply, "Don't hold the state hostage over a controversial tax plan. Do real tax reform later. We need a budget now with maximum funding for education and human services."

She wants us to think about what will happen to the next generation of Kentuckians with further disinvestments in education, health care, social services, infrastructure and other public investments which benefit all Kentuckians? What will happen to Kentucky's economy?
