State of the States: Kentucky
Gov. Steve Beshear (D)
Date of Speech: Jan. 7
Gov. Beshear used his State of the State speech to renew his call for an expansion of gambling to, in part, increase funding for schools.
He recounted the success Kentucky has had in adopting the common-core standards, raising graduation rates, and expanding early education. But he said that momentum will stall without more revenue for schools.
He also is pushing legislation to "provide for more accountability and better transparency throughout our state's early-child-care system."
