A slow moving cold front will bring rain back to the mountains Tuesday afternoon and evening. Some storms could contain heavy rain and could lead to new flash flooding. Keep an eye on water levels in flood prone areas and do not cross flooded roadways.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Financial ledgers show the state finished last year with a $70.6 million surplus.
Driskell warned that the coming fiscal year will be another austere one because revenue growth isn't keeping pace with rising costs.
Of the surplus, Driskell said $45 million will be used to cover necessary government expenses this fiscal year and $25.6 million will go into the state's Budget Reserve Trust Fund, often referred to as the rainy day fund.
Driskell said the Road Fund had a $17.7 million surplus.
