House Budget Chair Reviews Bevin’s Spending Plan

Rep. Rick Rand (D-Bedford) says the dire narrative about the state’s finances promoted by Republicans is exaggerated. Democrats do agree that some budget cuts are in order, just not to the extent Gov. Matt Bevin has proposed.

Rand, who is chair of the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee, talks with KET’s Renee Shaw about the governor’s spending plan and its potential impacts on K-12 and higher education. The complete interview will air on Legislative Update, tonight at 11 on KET.
