Gov. Bevin: "I apologize" to those hurt by comments

Gov. Bevin: Gov. Bevin: "I apologize" to those hurt by comments

Now, politicians from both sides of the aisle have spoken out about Bevin's comments, and the Kentucky House officially gave him a condemnation. "They think we are going to get exhausted and go home", she said.

"I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them", he said.

"We are hopeful that the passage of these bills, which provide much-needed resources for Kentucky students, represent the first step towards Kentucky legislators finding long-term adequate and sustainable funding for the Commonwealth's public schools".

'I'm sorry for those of you, every single one of you, that has been hurt by things that I've said, ' Bevin said.

Those cheers were dampened later when Bevin decried teachers for leaving work to protest at the Capitol, causing more than 30 school districts in the states to close for the day.

"It is my accountability to symbolize you, not exclusively after I'm talking to you, however after I'm talking in your behalf in methods which might be clear, which might be understood, that do not harm folks and do not confuse folks", he stated.

Bevin's comments came shortly after Republican lawmakers voted to override his vetoes of an operating budget that included increased spending for public education with the help of an accompanying tax increase.

Cooper voted for Bevin in 2015 and vowed Saturday not to do it again. I don't know how we can misunderstand his intent. "There is no rational comment I could make to that", Winkler said, the Courier-Journal reported. The pension bill passed by the Kentucky legislature moves new hires onto a hybrid pension plan and would not protect them from future changes to the system. "What Governor Bevin said about teachers following their peaceful rally yesterday was reprehensible, and we are proud to join with the many others who have condemned his petty, spiteful remarks".

Telephone messages left with spokesmen for the House Democratic caucus, House Republicans and the Kentucky Education Association weren't immediately returned Sunday.

In Arizona, after weeks of teacher protests and walkout threats across the state, Gov. Doug Ducey promised a net 20 percent raise by 2020. "Well, that's a coward", said Kentucky state Rep. Regina Huff, a Republican middle school special-education teacher, the Courier-Journal reported. And in Oklahoma, Republican Gov. Mary Fallin raised teacher salaries by $6,100 and boosted funding by millions. "We have to have this revenue to fund our schools".

The legislator heeded the protests and overrode the veto.
