Governor Beshear

Governor Beshear and the sponsors of a bill that could save employers millions of dollars in federal unemployment insurance taxes have scheduled a press conference this afternoon in Frankfort.

In recognition of "Earth Hour" activities around the world, lights on the State Capitol in Frankfort were dimmed for one hour Saturday. "Earth Hour" is an international program backed by the World Wildlife Federation, to recognize the need to conserve energy and protect the environment.

Governor Steve Beshear is requesting a federal disaster declaration for parts of eastern and northern Kentucky hit by tornadoes last week. The declaration would allow federal money to help with clean up and rebuilding. It will also help provide funds to affected businesses.
