Andy Beshear on Local Issues
Supports state gaming to pay for state pensions
[After the Kentucky Supreme Court struck down Gov. Bevin's state pension plan] Beshear said, ""Long-term, what the pension system needs, is a new, dedicated source of revenue that goes directly to pensions and doesn't raise anyone's taxes.
In my opinion, it ought to come from expanded gaming -- including casino gaming, sports betting, fantasy sports, and we ought to prepare for online poker."
Beshear is eager to jump on board with gambling, but Bevin has said he does not want that.
