Sen. Neal Assails Federal Education Cuts

A state lawmaker from Jefferson County who serves on the Senate Education Committee says he is personally offended by the cuts to education forced by the federal budget sequester. Democrat Gerald Neal says Kentuckians should be expressing their collective displeasure to the state’s Congressional delegation…

"And it clearly takes us back…not forward…and clearly it’s a political ploy that’s taking place on that level. It is outrageous…" - Democrat Gerald Neal 

Neal says the budget cuts hurt Kentucky and especially the people who receive the services being curtailed.
