The sleeping beast is waking up since the session is right around the corner. David Williams on Steve Beshear:

While I think Williams is spot-on about Beshear never, you know, doing anything ever… I think the point needs to be made that the man has made no real effort to actually push expanded gambling. It’s all fallen on the shoulders of the horse industry. Holding a meeting here and there with track presidents and making a few appointments clearly isn’t enough.
Williams needs to stand up for comprehensive tax reform. Immediately.
Because we’re all gonna die of the poverty ASAP without the gambling, which will never be expanded under this governor, and tax reform is necessary.
