State Budget Could be Voted on Late this Week

Kentucky lawmakers could vote as early as this Friday on the state’s two-year budget. Legislators say the House Appropriations committee will take up the state spending plan on Thursday afternoon, and the bill could go to the full

House for consideration as early as Friday morning. Few details have been released by lawmakers, who are charged with crafting the budget after Governor Andy Beshear presented his budget plan a few weeks ago.  

In his budget, the Governor proposed additional revenue of $1.5 billion.   It is unlikely the House will propose that amount of additional revenue, but they are expected to include some additional revenue in their budget. 

Upon passage in the House, the bill will go to the Senate and ultimately to the Governor before the legislature adjourns on April 13th
