Kentucky lawmakers pass budget, now heads to governor’s desk
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has not signed the state budget agreement proposal yet.
Lawmakers in both chambers say they are extremely pleased with the agreement.
The $21.5 billion proposal would be used for the next two years.
It will include new money for the state’s retirement systems for teachers and state employees.
Governor Bevin has until April 27 to veto all or parts of the budget.
