Gov. Fletcher was left in the unusual position of having the last word on the 2007/2008 state budget through his line-item veto when the General Assembly, because of extended negotiations to reconcile the House and Senate versions of the state budget, ran out of time to reconvene to consider Fletcher’s vetoes.
Fletcher announced his decisions in an address and press conference on April 24, 2006. KET’s coverage of the event, Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s Budget Veto Address, includes responses from Kentucky House Speaker Jody Richards and Senate President David Williams.
