Beshear Encourages Voters To Take Action

HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear has some advice for voters frustrated by the state's ongoing financial troubles.

Speaking at a Town Hall meeting in western Kentucky on Monday night, Beshear said residents need to speak up and exert political pressure in an effort to be heard.

The Henderson Gleaner reports that Beshear said the state has had to make painful decisions in the wake of a budget shortfall. The governor said the state is robbing Peter to pay Paul in an effort to get by in some cases.

Some in the audience suggested Beshear come up with alternatives to raising money outside of casino gambling and increased taxes, both measures that didn't make it out of the General Assembly.
