Kentucky governor vetoes GOP-backed education measure
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear vetoed a bill Wednesday that would shift key school governance decisions to superintendents and away from school decision-making boards.
Those provisions — a top priority for Senate Republicans — reflect clear divisions between the Democratic governor and GOP lawmakers on some high-profile education policies. The GOP-dominated legislature will have a chance to override the veto when lawmakers meet again on April 13.
