Beshear to Make Big Budget Cuts

The state of Kentucky will run out of money by June, unless something is done now.

That's according to Governor Steve Beshear, who says Kentucky is operating with a shortfall of more than 400-million dollars.

Now, he's promised to make some big budget cuts, hoping to get the state back on track.

"My top priority in finding a solution to this problem is to make sure the most needy of us are taken care of," stated Beshear.

The govenor is also considering a hiring freeze as a possible option.
