Bevin, help workers instead of investigating Beshear

Gov. Matt Bevin has extended the investigation into Steve Beshear’s administration. This is costing taxpayers up to $1 million, while 26.5 percent of Kentuckians are living on pay from low-wage jobs.

One in six of our fellow Kentuckians rely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to put food on the table for themselves and their children. A dangerous federal farm bill that is going to joint committee holds a provision that would take those benefits from more than 2 million people across the United States.

I urge everyone to be active and reach out to our members of Congress, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Andy Barr, and encourage them to support Kentucky’s hardworking people.
