Gov. Andy Beshear Delivers 2022 Recommended Highway Plan

By Chuck Wolfe

Frankfort, KY - On Friday, January 14, 2022, Gov. Andy Beshear presented a 2022 Recommended Highway Plan that puts a priority on repairing and preserving pavement and bridges and positions Kentucky to compete for federal funding to advance large-scale projects critical to Kentucky's continued economic growth.

The 2022 Governor's Recommended Highway Plan is based on anticipated revenues of $8.5 billion through 2028 - $6.2 billion in federal-aid highway program funding and $2.3 billion in anticipated state revenues.

"My Recommended Highway Plan is fiscally responsible, regionally diverse and data-driven," Gov. Beshear said. "It will enhance safety, accessibility and the quality of life for all of our citizens. It also provides a way to pursue the types of investments we need to build on the record-setting economic development of the past two years."

Separately from the highway plan, the Governor's recommended budget proposes to use $250 million in state funds as matching funds for federal grants for three of Gov. Beshear's top transportation priorities:

This Week at the KY State Capitol

Lawmakers send bills on disaster relief and remote instruction to the governor

By Mike Wynn, LRC

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky General Assembly hit its stride in the second week of the 2022 legislative session, passing a $200 million disaster relief bill for Western Kentucky and advancing a series of education bills on remote instruction, early literacy and student mental health.

The short, four-day week was punctuated by grief for many lawmakers amid the deaths of two high-profile figures in Kentucky politics.

Former State Rep. Darryl Owens was remembered in a funeral service in Louisville on Tuesday, following his death on Jan. 4. Thursday brought word that Larry Forgy, who had remained active in Kentucky politics for decades, had passed away early that morning.

However, the sad news did not deter legislators from addressing some of the largest crises facing the Commonwealth.

Bipartisanship reached the high mark on Wednesday when more than a dozen legislators spoke on the House and Senate floors about the violent tornados that swept through Western Kentucky in mid-December. Lawmakers capped off the poignant discussion by passing the relief bill on a unanimous vote in both chambers.

Gentle yoga a foundation for healthy habits

According to Harvard Health, regular yoga practice with its emphasis on the mind-body connection might be a useful tool to protect heart health and reduce certain risks. Gentle yoga, taught by the Adair County Health Department each year, is a good way to get started.

According to a review published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine, researchers analyzed over 300 studies and found that among individuals with coronary artery disease -- plaque buildup in the arteries -- regular yoga sessions were linked to better blood pressure, improved cholesterol and triglyceride levels, healthier body mass index and better quality of life.
