This week – the hosts of Appodlachia on the role of Kentucky in the wider Appalachian context. And, Robert and Jazmin on Beshear's vetoes, as well as the bills left unpassed by the legislature currently.
The success of last year's election proves it: The often-claimed trade-off between election integrity and reasonable measures to make it easier for people to vote is, in fact, largely false.
The state is adding three new vaccination sites, bringing the total number to 573, but Beshear spent a good part of his news briefing urging Kentuckians to sign up for unfilled vaccination openings.
Some lberals are praising KY Repub lawmakers for making it easier to vote, instead of passing laws to suppress minority votes. The GOP will never admit it, of course – but they approved voting “reform” legislation because it helps THEM.
The percentage of Kentuckians testing positive for the novel coronavirus dropped again Wednesday, to 2.85%, as the state's vaccination program continued to expand.
Beshear vetoed HB 563, the so-called "school choice" bill, and HB 258, which makes new teachers work longer for less guaranteed benefits.
On Tuesday, Gov. Andy Beshear signed 10 bills that prioritize the well-being and safety of all Kentuckians, with a special focus on protecting seniors and vulnerable children and families.
Governor Andy Beshear issued vetoes on three more bills on Tuesday, noting that each of the bills harmed Kentuckians instead of helping them.
Kentucky broke another weekly record for coronavirus shots, but several vaccination sites still have many slots open next week.
