The State of the Commonwealth address

Last night was the State of the Commonwealth address, given by Governor Beshear. Overall it was a good speech, very similar to the themes laid out in his inaugural address. The speech was short, which we appreciate. It was long on specifics and short on substance. It is my understanding that the specifics will be laid out in the budget address on January 29th.

My favorite part of the speech was when the Governor said that the status quo is no longer acceptable. I could not agree more with that statement. Of course, my vision of what needs to change and the Governor's vision may be completely different. But I am glad that he is open to change.
