Frankfort, Ky. (April 11, 2022) – The Republican Party of Kentucky issued the following statement during Governor Beshear’s press conference about the Republican budget.
“Once again, Governor Beshear stands at a podium painting a picture of his leadership that doesn’t match reality,” RPK spokesperson Sean Southard said. “The Governor spent the entire legislative session on the sidelines and refused to engage with the General Assembly in any meaningful way. He never walked down the hall to speak with House or Senate leadership. Instead, he chided them from the briefing room. Thanks to strong Republican leadership, this budget makes investments in all day Kindergarten, fully funds pensions, and provides historic funding to school districts, empowering them to make local decisions about staff salaries.”
