KPNS: Bevin Pension and budget bills do not solve problems
. . . both will be vetoed.
Original story URL: http://www.kypressnewsservice.com/public/story1.php?id=1523287357
From Kentucky Press News Service
Speaking at a news conference Monday morning, Gov. Matt Bevin said he would veto the pension and budget bills passed last week by the General Assembly.
"Good things are in that pension bill," he said, "but we've not solved the pension problem." He also criticized the budget bill saying it would leave the state vulnerable by spending all of the state's $250 million emergency funding.
He took many lawmakers to task saying although they are intelligent people, they don't understand finance or how pension plans work.
Reporters ask Bevin if he considered using his line-item veto power to eliminate portions of the bills he didn't like instead of vetoing the entire bills. He said no. Both need substantial reworking he said, although he added that both contained some good things -- just not enough.
Where does the situation go from here? Bevin said that was up to the General Assembly to figure out. He he said there is adequate time to address the issues. - KNPS
