What? You’re a state employee looking to get paid when you normally do? And you have all kinds of bills set to be automatically paid? And maybe you’ve had your vacation scheduled for months and months?
Haha, yeah, sorry bout yer luck!
At least, that’s what Steve Beshear and his Personnel Secretary, Tim Longmeyer, say in this letter to employees:

The budget enacted by the General Assembly for FY 2010-2012 mandates that the regular payroll of June 30, 2012 cannot be issued prior to July 1, 2012. Therefore, please be advised that the payroll you would have received on Friday, June 29, 2012 will be received on Monday, July 2, 2012.
Make alternative arrangements: No amount from the June 30, 2012 payroll may be paid to employees before Monday, July 2, 2012, which is the first banking day of the new fiscal year. Agencies are not to provide these checks early to employees, and banking institutions have been advised that these checks should not be cashed early. Please make alternative arrangements as you deem fit. Keep in mind that the July 4th holiday is also that week — this is important for any travel plans you may have.
The letter was only sent out on April 30 so many employees are just finding out.
