FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Governor Andy Beshear went in front of Kentucky lawmakers Thursday night to deliver his budget address.  

Most of what the governor discussed were details he’s been releasing all week.  

The big things he hit on were education and raises. He’s also looking to invest more in agri-tech, which is something he has been supportive of since he ran for office. And as we learned Wednesday, bold healthcare investments in fully funding Medicaid.  

He called it the “our future is now” budget with plans to invest in education, the workforce, and healthcare to change the trajectory of the Commonwealth, especially after the record year of economic growth and investments.
