Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear
It’s been a tough start for Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear. First he had to break it to the citizens of Kentucky that our state government had no money and his budget contained deep cuts. Then he lost a hard fight with a contentious legislature over casinos and an increased cigarette tax. On the other hand, he managed to get legislation passed to bolster the state’s pension system and he joined in the investigation into high gas prices in Louisville. All this and he’s not even through his first year as governor. Join us this Friday with your questions when we talk with Governor Beshear about where he’s been, what he’s learned and what’s in store for Kentucky.
