... Stumbo says neither tax reform nor casino gambling are likely in '14
01/31/2014 12:48 PM
House Speaker Greg Stumbo sought to lower the public’s expectations that the General Assembly would approve of broad tax changes during the 2014 session — or pass a measure to allow casino gambling for that matter.
Stumbo told reporters Thursday that Gov. Steve Beshear has asked to meet Monday with House leaders about a forthcoming tax reform package.
While Stumbo said he doesn’t think it’s “likely” something can pass, he said Democratic caucus members will keep an open mind.
“Right now, I think it’s a wait and see. People are respectful of the governor. They respect him. They respect his request to wait and see what his proposals are before we pass judgement on them,” Stumbo said.
So would Stumbo be satisfied with a budget that doesn’t include any addition money? Watch the video:
