Beshear, legislative leaders meet again on budget

Two weeks into a recess for this year’s legislative session, Gov. Steve Beshear along with members of his staff met with legislative leaders today. 

Jack Brammer with the Herald-Leader reports that those in the meeting called it “productive” and House and Senate budget committees plan to continue meeting next week. 

Lawmakers return to Frankfort on Feb. 3 to continue this year’s “short” legislative session that is scheduled to end in late March.

The state is facing a $456.1 million budget shortfall this fiscal year that has occupied the top spot on the legislative agenda so far this year.
