Financial Records Released for Beshear's Inauguration

The financial records are in for Governor Steve Beshear's inauguration.

The day long festivities cost at least $352,000.

Records filed with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance show Beshear's inaugural committee raised over $750,000 to pay for the day's events.

Beshear Spokeswoman Vicki Glass says additional bills still need to be payed, so the final cost will be more.

Registry records show former Governor Fletcher spent over $800,000 for his inauguration.

The governor is required to file another report in March detailing any additional spending.
