School Systems Have to Make Adjustments as Legislators Try to Stave Off Budget Cuts

Education for Kentucky's youth has already had its budget cut by Governor Steve Beshear.

School systems will have to make adjustments over the next few months as legislators try to stave off more budget cuts.

15th District House Representative Brent Yonts says he feels in order to make up for the shortfall school districts are now facing, lawmakers should look into various accounts and agencies.

"We may pull some of that money in and use it to fund programs to give teachers raises that they were promised and fund higher education and keep the cost of tuition down," said Rep. Brent Yonts.

Kentucky may have to suffer through this more than $500-million budget deficit the next two years.
