Amid all the mess in the 2009 General Assembly, from tax increases and the raid of the Health Fund to the failure of prevailing wage reform and government transparency bills (here and here), a recent Kentucky survey suggests widespread awareness of Frankfort’s shenanigans.
Americans for Prosperity surveyed 600 Kentuckians and found 58 percent were dissatisfied with the legislature’s handling of tax and budget issues. The survey was taken January 22-27, before the tax hikes and the $50 million health fund raid.
The survey also found 49% of respondents viewed wasteful spending on programs that don’t work to be the most important issue in state budgeting, according to an AFP press release.
Repealing CATS testing, of course, helps some on that front.
