Kentucky's flagging public pension systems now are considered the worst in the nation, according to a story in Governing magazine. The commonwealth's situation is called a "cautionary tale" for other states and offers a glimpse of what could be in store for them.

  In a combined State of the Commonwealth and budget address, Gov. Matt Bevin revealed his financial plan for the next 30 months – the remaining six months of this fiscal year and the next two years. Bevin's plan contains no tax cuts, a 4.5 percent across-the-board cut in executive agencies, and pay raises for state troopers and others "who protect us."
