  • Education is a top priority in state’s budget

    After hours of work and negotiations lasting through the night, the conference committee of the House and Senate members agreed upon a strong, responsible budget for the next two years. The final budget borrows less money and uses less one-time money to pay recurring expenses than the proposals from the Governor and House. That means both the debt service ratio and structural imbalance are lower.

    What I learned in Frankfort
    On March 21, with a bipartisan 75-16 vote, HB 31 passed the Kentucky House of Representatives and was sent to the Senate. Senate leadership refused to assign this bill to a committee or allow a vote on Sen. Jimmy Higdon’s related SB 14. In an effort to protect landowner’s rights, Sen. Higdon filed floor amendments to three different bills, which is a total of five bills that Senate leadership didn’t allow to advance.

    Wicker is dedicated to Bradfordsville
    I am writing this letter in support of my friend Jackie Wicker who is up for re-election as Magistrate District One. Jackie has 11 years experience as magistrate in this district and he has always been our force in fiscal court regardless of his own personal opinions. His duties include budgeting for our county offices, solid waste, economic development, road maintenance and improvements along with a lot of other departments such as the jail, sheriff and EMS. And, he has never once voted to raise our taxes.
