FRANKFORT — Gov. Steve Beshear’s proposal to include $780 million in expanded gambling revenue to bridge a sizable shortfall met Wednesday with a chilly reception.
Some local legislators also greeted the proposal with a cold shoulder, calling the budget “unrealistic.”
“It gave the governor a way to balance,” Rep. Jimmie Lee, D-Elizabethtown, said. “Was it realistic? Probably not.”
