Statement from the Governorís Office on House Budget Proposal


By Jessica Ditto
News from Gov. Matt Bevin's Communications Office

FRANKFORT, KY (Mar. 15, 2016) - The following is a statement from Governor Bevinís Communications Director Jessica Ditto on the House budget proposal: ďWith only 12 days left in the 2016 legislative session, it is encouraging to see the House Democrats finally respond to the budget we put forward back in January. We are pleased to see that they clearly got the message from the people of Kentucky who are fed up with mortgaging their childrenís future through bonding billions of new debt. And yet, their proposed budget once again continues the bad habit of spending one-time funds for recurring expenses. With little regard for the future, it also strips away the permanent fund dedicated for pensions and unforeseen emergencies. The Governor looks forward to working with the House and Senate as the process moves forward, to ensure the ultimate enactment of a fiscally responsible budget.Ē
