FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Government services for military veterans
wouldn't be cut under Gov. Steve Beshear's budget proposal.
Beshear delivered the proposal to lawmakers on Tuesday. It
recommends cuts of 8.4 percent to most government agencies, but he
said it's important to shield veteran programs from those cuts.
The Democratic governor proposed some additional spending for
veterans, including construction of a fourth state veterans nursing
home in Radcliff and operating funds to open a new wing at the
Western Kentucky Veterans Center in Hanson.
The budget proposal also reauthorizes a fifth veterans cemetery
in Leslie County, putting the state closer to its goal of having a
veterans cemetery within 75 miles of every community in Kentucky.
