Democrats pass reckless, pork-filled budget

State Senator Darren Bailey (R-Louisville) issued the following statement after the passage of a partisan budget:

“In typical Democrat fashion, the majority filed a 3,000 page budget just before midnight, minutes before my friends over in the House of Representatives voted on it. With little to no time to review the proposal, the Senate passed the same partisan budget after 2 a.m. Tuesday.  This spending plan is reckless, eliminates almost $700 million in job-creation incentives, and adds dozens of new programs, including $1 billion in Democrat Pork projects. After the year our communities suffered due to government overreach and COVID-19 shutdowns, we should be investing in the hard-working people of our communities instead of furthering backdoor agendas benefiting partisan politicians.”
