Kentucky Lawmakers Override Finances Veto in Get for Lecturers

The state party's headquarters is just down the street from the state Capitol, where thousands of teachers, many of them wearing red T-shirts, marched Friday in support of public education.

Kentucky lawmakers on Friday overrode Gov. Matt Bevin's vetoes of tax and budget bills that boost spending on public education with the help of additional tax revenue, in a victory for teachers. "The fact that someone believes that revenues may not be there is not sufficient for a budget reduction act", explained Stivers.

Bevin had vetoed both bills, warning the new taxes would not generate enough money to cover the new spending. Thousands of educators swarmed the Capitol to call on legislators to override the governor's veto of the state budget and tax plan bill.

"House Bill 200 ensures we fully fund the Department of Veterans' Affairs, that we fully fund the Kentucky State Police, that we ensure the request for new cruisers and rifles for the Kentucky State Police is fully funded", said Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee Chairman Christian McDaniel, R-Taylor Mill.

On Friday afternoon, the House voted 57-40 to override Bevin's veto of the tax bill. Gov. Mary Fallin signed legislation raising teacher salaries by about $6,100 and providing millions in new education funding, but many say schools need more money.

But Governor Bevin tweeted that he's put more money in to public education and pensions than any governor in Kentucky history.

"It could affect me as far as supplies I could have for my students or things I can provide for my students, technology, different things that may not be available, depending on the funds or how they're brought to us", she says. Osborne said he did not know if the House would vote to override.

The override vote on the budget wasn't close.

Senate Minority Floor Leader Ray S. Jones II, D-Pikeville, spoke against the veto override.

One of the representatives who voted to uphold the governor's veto was Jim Wayne, D-Louisville, who said the General Assembly had a chance to do better.

In the Senate, Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, said HB 366 will generate almost a half of billion dollars in additional money for the state over the next two fiscal years. Democrats say the tax bill favors the wealthy over lower-income individuals.

In Kentucky, teacher anger has boiled over amid changes to their pension system and a battle for more education funding. That the vetoes were desired by them to endure, which would've pressured the Senate to call a special session of the State Legislature to pass a new funding. Brandon Smith called on lawmakers to override Bevin's veto of the budget to keep the governor from calling lawmakers back for a special legislative session.

Even the teachers looking on seemed confused at times.

"This is an education bill". They are instead focused on education funding and a battle over their pensions.

Bevin made the comments to several reporters early Friday evening, hours after the Republican-led legislature overrode his vetoes of the state budget and tax reform bills amid noisy protests from teachers.
