Governor Beshear Schedules News Conference On Budget Cuts

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear will outline his ideas
Thursday for handling a $456 million Kentucky budget shortfall.

Governor Beshear has scheduled a morning news conference at the state Capitol.

The state is facing a $456 million shortfall in the current
fiscal year that ends June 30. Kentucky's two-year $19 billion
state budget is not set to expire until summer 2010.

Earlier this week, Beshear announced he would give back 10
percent of his pay to the state as a symbolic gesture of
solidarity. He also said that any plan would probably include
funding cuts that would likely be "very painful."
