Gov Bevin talks “drowning victims,” pension outrage, and 2019

August 14, 20189 min
Governor Bevin started the conversation by clarifying his drowning victims analogy for the pension crisis. He also discussed the lack of outrage against former administrations for under-funding the pension, where the pension will be in the next few years if the system isn’t reformed, and what he would do if the pension changes are ruling illegal by the Kentucky Supreme Court. He also talked about the Commonwealth’s ongoing negotiations with JCPS and his timeline for announcing his plans for 2019.
