Sides still far apart on fixing pension

FRANKFORT —

 Gov. Steve Beshear, the Democratic House and Republican Senate apparently are no closer to agreement on how to fund changes to the state pension system, a key difference on perhaps the most important issue still facing the 2013 General Assembly.

Beshear sidestepped the question Wednesday when he was asked by a reporter if the Senate had offered a way to pay for proposed changes to the underfunded state employee pension system.

“What I can say to you is the Senate and the House and I are discussing both pension reform and possible options for funding it,” Beshear answered.

But Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, later said there has been no funding proposal offered by the Senate.

“The governor has discussed a menu of items with us, but there has been no proposal presented by the Senate.”
