Thousands of Kentucky School Teachers from across the state rallied at the Capitol in Frankfort Wednesday attempting to send a strong message to state lawmakers, who are considering a change to the Teacher’s pension, known as Senate Bill 1. Several school districts decided to cancel classes on Wednesday in order to allow teachers the opportunity to travel to Frankfort for the rally, other school districts were closed because of weather related conditions that allowed the teachers to make it to Frankfort. Senate Bill 1, which Gov. Matt Bevin and some other Republican leaders say will save the state $3.2 billion over the next 20 years will also help stabilize one of the country’s worst pension funds. The pension is facing a $41 billion deficit in the next 30 years and Governor Bevin wants to cut most state agencies budgets by 6 percent over 20 years. Senate Bill 1 has stalled in the Senate after 8 Republicans joined Democrats in opposition to the proposal, which would cut retirement benefits for teachers, among other changes. Last week, Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, said it is unlikely the bill will pass before the legislative session ends on April 13.
