The Brooks & Company year-end show on Tuesday, Dec. 29th looked at the big stories that affected our lives in 2009.
This Tuesday, Jan.5th, we look at the year ahead at the challenges we face, including:
- The General Assembly and the state budget shortfall. Where will the state get the money it needs to balance the budget? Will legislators draft a one-year budget? Will the need for revenue prompt more calls for tax reform, or provide a boost to efforts to get slots at the horse tracks?
- With the popularity of Congress and President Barack Obama falling to new lows, will Republicans see big election gains in this year’s mid-term elections?
- With Gov. Steve Beshear’s popularity waning, will he be effective with his continued push for expanded gambling this year?
- Bardstown resident Kevin Brumley continues to post videos of sewer overflows along Town Creek. Are there problems with the $4 million project as rumored?
