Beshear Touts Health Insurance Plan

BELLEVUE, Ky. (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial nominee Steve Beshear is proposing a health care plan that would expand insurance coverage and curb health costs.

Beshear said today that if he is elected he would extend health coverage to thousands of uninsured children in Kentucky.

Beshear is challenging Republican Governor Fletcher in the November sixth election.

The Democratic challenger has touted casino gambling in Kentucky as a way to increase revenue for his plans.

He estimates the venture would generate at least $500 million a year.

Governor Fletcher has come out strongly against casino gaming.
