Kentucky House votes to override Bevinís vetoes of tax, budget and local pension funding bills
UPDATED SUMMARY: The Kentucky House voted Friday to override Gov. Matt Bevin's veto of the legislature's tax bill, state budget bill and local pension funding bill, sending the legislation to the Senate for that chamber's consideration. Republican lawmakers said the tax-bill override was necessary to pay for additional education spending they put into the two-year state budget bill. Democratic lawmakers said they supported the school spending but protested the secretive way the tax plan was created and the way it raises additional revenue. The House voted 57 to 40 to override the tax-bill veto, 66 to 28 to override the budget veto and 94-2 to override House Bill 362, which allows a phase-in of pension cost increases for local governments.
