Ky. attorney general asks lawmakers to pass expanded gaming to fund public pensions


Senate Bill 151 takes newly hired teachers out of the pension system, and places them in a hybrid plan that features elements of both a pension and a 401(k). Republican supporters said the bill was critically needed to help plug the more than $40 billion hole in the pension system. But Beshear, the Kentucky Education Association and the Fraternal Order of Police filed a lawsuit, claiming the bill breaks a legal contract with public employees.
