Williams Says Budget Timing Poses 'Serious Problem'

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Senate President David Williams says his
chamber is facing a "serious problem" with the timing of the
state budget proposal.

So far, the Democrat-led state House has not approved its own
version of a spending plan. Williams says the Republican-led Senate
is not expecting to get the legislation until mid-March.

Williams says lawmakers are running out of time.

By law, the General Assembly may only be in session 60 days this
year and must complete its work by April 15. Tuesday marked the
legislature's 33rd day.

Gov. Steve Beshear has proposed an $18.5 billion two-year
spending plan.
