House Likely to Vote on Budget Plan

The Kentucky House will probably vote Wednesday on a two-year, $19.5 billion state budget that calls for 8.4 percent cuts to some parts of government and very little new borrowing for capital projects. The House Appropriations and Revenue Committee voted 26-2 Tuesday to approve House Bill 265, the executive branch budget. The House made some modest tweaks to Gov. Steve Beshear's proposed budget, which was introduced in January.
