(Frankfort, KY) - Two controversial Kentucky education bills are now law after the General Assembly voted to override Governor Andy Beshear's vetoes of the measures.
A House Bill known as the school choice bill will allow tax credits to pay for vouchers for students in some of Kentucky's largest counties to attend private school.
The veto was narrowly overridden, receiving the minimum required 51 votes.
The veto on a measure that will require teachers hired after January 1st, 2022 to work 30 years before drawing from their retirement was also overridden.
