Kentucky legislature has bigger issues than a legislator pay cut

Another smoke screen hits Frankfort. If all else fails, divert attention to something more comfortable.

Senator Kathy Stein, D-Lexington is causing quite a stir with her resolution that the legislative and judicial branches match Governor Beshear and others in the Executive Branch with a 10% pay cut.

It makes nice copy and creates a great diversion. But it is not the solution to the state’ budget woes.

It would be much more cost effective if the Governor and legislators just earned their pay by making the tough decisions to curb state spending and eliminate wasteful practices.
