RPK Response to Beshear’s Message on HB 1

Andy Beshear previously vetoed tax relief for Kentuckians during 40-year high inflation caused by his party’s historic spending spree

FRANKFORT, Ky. (February 17, 2023) – The Republican Party of Kentucky issued the following statement in response to Governor Beshear’s message on House Bill 1:

“This is just the latest example of Andy Beshear taking credit for Republican policies after having previously vetoed them,” RPK spokesman Sean Southard said. “Last year, Andy Beshear vetoed the process which makes today’s Republican tax cut possible. He has spent countless hours attacking Republicans for this policy approach and left the members of his own party out to dry on it. What’s different between last year and this one? There’s an election this November. From his mishandling of our unemployment system, our Department of Juvenile Justice, his Team Kentucky Slush Fund, and the learning loss of our children, Andy knows he’s vulnerable to whoever wins the Republican primary for Governor. It is a blatant political move and Kentuckians will see through it.”
