Ky. Teachers Returning To Frankfort To Rally For Education

Teachers have staged numerous demonstrations in Frankfort during this session. They filled the capitol building Monday April 2

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin says it's "a fact" that "hundreds of thousands" of children were left home alone by single parents unable to afford child care, and some were raped, poisoned, and took drugs during the one-day teachers' strike.

According to the Kentucky Education Association, Friday's rally was meant to encourage legislators to override Bevin's veto of budget and tax bills. They were also calling on Kentucky lawmakers to override the governor's veto of a $22 billion budget bill that contained significant education funding.

A spokesman for the Kentucky Education Association declined to comment on Bevin's remarks. It's unclear if the House will act on the resolution.

The Governor's comments came after Republican legislators voted to override Bevin's vetoes regarding a two-year operating budget.

Meanwhile, add the lawsuit over pension reform to the ongoing feud between Governor Matt Bevin and Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear.

The budget proposed increased funding for public education paid for by a $480 million tax increase.

"The only reason we did not have a special session past year is because Jeff 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..." The state has enough money to operate until June 30.

McDaniel later told reporters he does not expect to see new budget and tax bills, only a "cleanup" bill to correct some errors made in House Bill 366, such as the inadvertent removal of a tax incentive used by Toyota and General Electric.

Bevin reportedly complained of the teachers sprawled across the capitol grounds, telling reporters he saw them smoking and "leaving trash around". But 5-7 House Republicans united by Senate Republicans, voted to override.

"The budget and revenue bills are balanced, and there are excess funds to ensure that they will remain balanced", McDaniel, R-Taylor Mill, said in a Senate floor speech.

However, the final version of pension reform in this session is much better that Bevin's initial proposal that included major cuts in benefits for retired, current and future public employees.

The Senate later voted 26 to 12 to override the funding veto. Earlier this month when lawmakers voted to pass a bill that preserves benefits or most workers but moves new hires into a hybrid plan.

Kentucky's pension bill revised numerous controversial provisions of its predecessor, like a mandatory 3 percent contribution into retiree health insurance funds and the end of a $145 million health fund for retired teachers.

"But what they're doing now impacts my students and their students". "We urge educators statewide not to allow our united efforts to be compromised by continued calls for action that deprive students, parents and communities of the educational services we provide".

"We have to get this revenue to finance schools", explained a Republican and middle school special education teacher, consultant Regina Huff.

The agendas from Kentucky arrived amid educator protests at Oklahoma and Arizona more than instruction funding and educator cover.
