Newly elected Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, who recently hinted he would like to eliminate the minimum wage,will make his first budget request to the state's General Assembly on Jan. 26.
Bevin will have had just two months since he was elected to craft a plan to account for the state's soaring public pension debt and expanding Medicaid population.
Bevin issued a statement earlier this month, complaining that he was facing a "financial crisis" left behind by former Gov. Steve Beshear.
Will he become known as the Great Slasher? I hope so.
