Overriding vetoes: House, Senate rebuke governor on three major bills

Thousands of Kentucky teachers head to state Capitol to call for increased education funding Kentucky Lawmakers Override Governor Veto on Tax, Budget Bills

Teachers got the blame, as Bevin said some single parents can not afford childcare and can not afford to take time off work to watch their children.

With the chants of hundreds of teachers ringing inside their own ears, Kentucky lawmakers voted Friday to override the Senate's veto of the two-year country funding which increases public schooling spending together with the assistance of a significantly more compared to 480 million tax growth. Bevin contends the budget is imbalanced and over estimates revenues in explaining his vetoes. Brandon Smith called on lawmakers to override Bevin's veto of the budget to keep the governor from calling lawmakers back for a special legislative session.

Bevin said "for a fact. hundreds of thousands" of children were left home alone because schools were closed in 39 districts across the state to allow teachers and administrators to protest funding cuts.

Teachers and lawmakers both made it clear that even though the budget and tax reform plans aren't where they'd like to see them, but they would rather go forward with what the current bills propose.

"What this tax bill really does is raise $436 million in taxes from the people who can least afford to pay more", he said.

The override of House Bill 366 led to a second override of Bevin's veto of the budget.

The Kentucky Senate has voted to override Gov. Matt Bevin's veto of House Bill 362, which would let local governments phase-in pension increases.

Assuming no special session is called, the 2018 General Assembly will come to a close on Saturday. Bevin said Hoover, "a married man, was sexually involved with a very young single member of his staff and was paying hush money to hide his actions".

Bevin's comments received bipartisan backlash in the state. I've been here eight years, they've been talking about taxing improvement for 40 years and they've done nothing about it.

Actually, six Republicans voted to sustain that veto, but Hoover's point was clear enough.

The Senate later voted 26 to 12 to override the funding veto.

"If you thinking siding with the governor and giving him the authority to control this budget is a good idea, then vote no", Smith said. In all, 88 of the 90 Republicans in the General Assembly voted against the Republican governor on the budget.

Sen. Morgan McGarvey, a Louisville Democrat, described the governor's remarks on Twitter as "an outrageous and unsubstantiated slander of a group of people who dedicate their lives to teaching and caring for our kids". This bill is a tax shift.

They also said the budget continues to provide inadequate funding for education and vigorously criticized the way Republicans crafted it without Democratic involvement.

"House Bill 200 ensures we fully fund the Department of Veterans' Affairs, that we fully fund the Kentucky State Police, that we ensure the request for new cruisers and rifles for the Kentucky State Police is fully funded", said Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee Chairman Christian McDaniel, R-Taylor Mill.
