  • Forecast projects state’s General Fund short by $150 million

  • “Keeping the Promise” pension plan released

    “Keeping the Promise,” our plan to save Kentucky’s pension systems, keeps the promise made to Kentucky’s current employees while also meeting the legal and moral obligations we owe to those who have already retired. Promises made are promises kept.

  • Hornback writes about governor’s proposed pension plan

    An ailing pension system threatening our state’s financial stability is the number one issue facing our great Commonwealth. As your State Senator, I have vowed to keep the pension promise to our teachers and public servants, and I am certain that the pension reform plan proposed by Gov. Bevin and the Kentucky General Assembly will do just that.

  • Keeton offers three chili recipes to try this fall

    Hello once again, my friends. It’s crazy to think that we are already back to talking about cool/cold weather foods and all the wonderful comfort they bring. But time stands still for no man, they say, and the fact is, it’s time to curl up with some tasty, hearty food and embrace the season.
