Beshear proposes cuts to reinvest in schools

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Steve Beshear's latest budget proposal had a familiar theme — another round of painful state spending cuts. But this time, he promised, some good would come from the austerity: an overdue infusion of money into public schools.

The second-term Democratic governor on Tuesday night proposed nearly $100 million in cuts to reshuffle money to elementary and secondary education. Beshear presented a $20.3 billion two-year budget proposal that now awaits haggling with lawmakers.
