Kentucky Catholics Cheer Override Of Governor's Veto Of School Choice Bill


(Frankfort, KY) - Louisville's Catholic leaders are cheering the move to override Governor Andy Beshear's veto of school choice legislation. 

Both the state's House and Senate voted to override Governor Beshear's veto of a bill that would use tax credits to fund vouchers for students in some of the state's largest counties to attend private schools.

Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz and the Catholic Conference of Kentucky supported the legislation, saying the bill would bring educational choice to Kentucky for the first time. 

Tuesday, the Bishops said the state will go from having no programs to one of the most expansive programs in the country.
