Education was focus of this year’s budget

When it comes to budgets, there is one big difference between the federal government and the states: The states balance theirs at the end of the fiscal year.

It can be a difficult task, especially when the economy is down.  Kentucky and nearly 20 other states have an added challenge as well, because they approve their budgets in two-year increments.  In our case, that means we have to peer more than 30 months into the future before determining how much money is expected to be available.
