Beshear Expects To Veto Some Budget Approprations

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear says he expects to veto
some appropriations proposed by lawmakers in the state's nearly $19
billion budget.

Beshear told reporters on Monday that he expects to do so by the
end of the day. He didn't say exactly what he plans to cut from the
spending proposal sent to him by lawmakers more than a week ago.

The General Assembly included funding cuts to numerous
government agencies and programs in its proposed budget. Kentucky
is facing a $900 million revenue shortfall in the next two fiscal
years.
