Reeves and other members of the legislative leadership have been grappling for years with how to provide more funds for what many agree is a crumbling transportation system.

Estimates indicate that Kentucky is in a $41 billion hole with regards to funding pensions over the next 30 years. We are not trusted to teach effectively, and have had most of the blame for society's ills placed in our laps. She's unhappy the bill will reduce her annual cost-of-living-adjustment from 1.5 percent to 1 percent.

"The reality is, I'm saving the pension system", Bevin said.

"The governor says we have the money".

Doing nothing would result in "punitive tax increases", Bowen said.

"We are going to sue you", a woman in the crowd told Bowen at one point.

"You're the future, the future taxpayers of state of Wyoming", Rothfuss asked.

Reeves said the Senate makes every effort to give every bill a committee hearing.

Additionally, besides the Olympics, there has been continued high-level discussions among both Koreas as well. Syria's government has been accused of using chemical weapons during the civil war, including in Ghouta.

Sen. Morgan McGarvey, a Louisville Democrat, asked how much of the projected $3.2 billion in savings came from reducing COLA payments for retired teachers.

State Rep. Nadine Nakamura, who supports the bill, spoke about the loss of her father and brother.

"Unless the Governor is willing to get the budget back to us in less than three days, it appears to me that we'll be here next week", Kinner said. He also said he doesn't want to have people worry about the possible shutdown of the department.

Rice said he voted for the appropriation because the Senate more than likely would have reached the 27 votes required for approval after the May 22 special elections. He told fellow senators he would vote for the appropriation "if we are one vote short". That plan created hybrid cash balance plans with 4 percent guaranteed returns.

Peter Horkan, who represents Opternative, an online company where consumers get a renewed prescription for contacts or glasses, says this that his company has policies in place in which consumers have to go to an eye doctor to get their first prescription and his company will not fill prescriptions of individuals where other serious diseases are suspected from online testing.

Bowen said allowing teachers into Social Security was part of the pension plan but was taken out at the request of education officials. Teachers are now leaving the field en mass over our poor treatment and unrealistic expectations from legislators on the local, state and federal levels. Even supporters said they didn't like some aspects of the bill.

It's been hard to get the three-fourths vote required in the Senate and House virtually every year since the program was created because the program has deeply divided Republicans.

Afterward, the crowd chanted, "Vote them out".
