Kentucky legislature votes to override governor's budget, tax, pension phase-in vetoes

  • WATCH: Bevin claims children were sexually abused, tried drugs because of teacher protest

Bevin said "for a fact. hundreds of thousands" of children were left home alone because schools were closed in 39 districts across the state to allow teachers and administrators to protest funding cuts.

The House's vote was 66-28 to override Bevin's veto of House Bill 200.

The Republican-controlled House voted 57-40 to override the GOP governor's veto of House Bill 366.

But the vote was closer in the Senate which secured the minimum number necessary - overriding the tax and revenue bill veto 20-18. "What this tax bill really does, it raises 436 million dollars in taxes from the people who can least afford to pay for it", argued Jones.

The country budget that is working consists of listing new spending for instruction, fueled and also a 6 per cent sales tax on certain solutions, for example auto and home fixes.

Bevin had vetoed both bills, warning the new taxes would not generate enough money to cover the new spending.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.

As that reality started to sink in at the Capitol, the governor expressed his frustration with the teachers who called in sick to rally to reporters. "The legislature doesn't understand the budget process, but yet unfortunately they are the ones making those decisions", Hoover said. The rally took on a festival-like atmosphere in Kentucky as some teachers sat in lawn chairs or sprawled out on blankets. They wanted the vetoes to stand, forcing the governor to call a special session of the state legislature to pass a new budget. "If we want to create a world without child abuse, we can not tolerate the governor's comments".

"And then just a few moments ago, which prompted me to feel compelled to say something he talked about voting for this was a sloppy, voting for a sloppy non-transparent bill". The final vote from the Senate floor came in around 5:45 p.m.

Stephanie Ikanovic was one of the teachers at the rally. She says she would rather be in the classroom Friday morning but she is so anxious about education spending that she made a decision to miss work to make sure her voice was heard.

A news release from the Kentucky State Police says crowd size inside the Capitol and the Annex building "may be limited" for safety reasons.

Matt Bevin slammed protesting teachers with an outrageous accusation Friday evening, indicating they were responsible for the inevitable sexual assault or poisoning of children left home alone in his state because school was out. Crosby Stills, Nash and Young's hit "Teach Your Children" bellowed from the loud speakers.

Sen. Morgan McGarvey, a Louisville Democrat, described the governor's remarks on Twitter as "an outrageous and unsubstantiated slander of a group of people who dedicate their lives to teaching and caring for our kids". Other districts sent delegations but kept classes open. They're likely to get a boisterous reception from teachers. "Well, that's a coward", said Republican Rep. Regina Huff, a middle school special education teacher.

While the Kentucky teachers have not demanded pay raises, the protests were inspired by the statewide strikes in West Virginia last month that pushed the legislature to give a five percent salary increase.

"It makes sure we fully fund the request of the Kentucky Teachers' Retirement System for a full pension contribution", McDaniel said.
