FRANKFORT, Ky. (WEHT) – Governor Andy Beshear will have a major amount of information to share with Kentuckians Wednesday, much of which will center around the pandemic.

The Governor is scheduled to detail his ideas for the state budget in Frankfort during his State of the Commonwealth address beginning at 6 p.m. central.

Lieutenant Governor Jacqueline Coleman tweeted Tuesday that the budget proposal coming from the Governor’s office will prioritize educators and school employees.
