Kentucky Road Plan Released Despite Constitutionality Concerns

Governor Steve Beshear's administration has released their 2008 Road Plan, despite an ongoing court challenge questioning its constitutionality.

Earlier this year, Beshear vetoed a $3.8 billion plan approved by the Kentucky General Assembly.

Now Senate President David Williams has a lawsuit pending against the governor, saying he was too late in vetoing the proposal and does not have the authority to spend money not approved by the legislature.

    Yup, lets waste some more tax payer money with a stupid lawsuit to settle your in-fighting/squabbles...Here is more money that could have been put towards the roads fund instead of raising the gas tax and gas prices. Am I in the United States or did I wake up in Communist Korea????? The politicians and rich just keep getting richer, the rest of us are getting poorer. Cost of living here is so high, soon we'll be looking like the starving children in the Sally Struther's "Save the Children" commercials because we are spending entire paychecks on gas to get to work to pay for more gas. Food will have been eliminated from our lives as an expense reduction....PUH-LEAZE!! This is so Idiotic!! Can't you all just get along and try helping the rest of us for a change instead of yourselves?!?!?!?
