With no time left to challenge the governor's line-item vetoes, you'd think lawmakers be at a disadvantage during the last week of the legislative session.

But Governor Ernie Fletcher says he's been briefed on parts of the budget proposal and doesn't know of anything he would likely veto.

Fletcher has supported many of the known budget initiatives including $50 million to buy classroom computers and a proposal to increase the salaries of teachers by about $4100 over the next two years.

The pay raise is intended to move Kentucky teachers toward pay equity with their counterparts in adjoining states.
