'I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today, a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them, ' Bevin said to NBC5 outside the state Capitol on Friday.

"Surely as we're having this conversation, children were harmed. some physically, some sexually, some were introduced to drugs for the first time, because they were vulnerable and left alone.it's offensive, frankly, it really is", Bevin told the Courier-Journal.

Bevin's comments came after thousands of teachers swarmed the Capitol, a lot of them hoping lawmakers would override his vetoes on budget and revenue bills.

Those cheers were dampened later when Bevin decried teachers for leaving work to protest at the Capitol, causing more than 30 school districts in the states to close for the day.

The veto of the budget bill, known as House Bill 200, was overridden in the Senate 25-12 and in the House 66-28.

New teachers will also enter into a cash-balance plan, which is "less generous than traditional pensions but more reliable than 401 (k)-style plans", according to Daniel Desroches of the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Teachers got the blame, as Bevin said some single parents can not afford childcare and can not afford to take time off work to watch their children.

After Kentucky lawmakers voted to override the budget veto, Bevin spoke with a reporter from the Courier-Journal. In one place, he said he'd met with Senate and House leaders week to indicate "more responsible tactics to pay for for 100% of the asked education financing".

"This next budget bill will be better".

Kentucky's Republican-led House of Representatives has overridden Gov. Matt Bevin's veto of a $480 million tax hike that helps pay for increases in public education spending. He said prior budgets contained money for local projects without properly funding the initiatives.

Hoover - who resigned as Speaker after accusations of sexual harassment of a legislative aide and Bevin's demand he resign from the legislature - called for the override of House Bill 366, the tax reform and revenue bill.

The day began with a bit of deju vu as massive crowds of teachers inundated the capitol, lobbying for additional school funding.

Lawmakers also expressed their grievances on Twitter.

Sammi Hatfield teaches third grade in Montgomery County. "They've done nothing to improve that process", said Carpenter. I've been here eight years, they've been talking about taxing improvement for 40 years and they've done nothing about it.

In Arizona, after weeks of teacher protests and walkout threats across the state, Gov. Doug Ducey promised a net 20 percent raise by 2020. "They think we are going to get exhausted and go home", she said. The budget bill includes 6.25 percent baseline cuts for most state agencies although some were spared.

"There are protests and rallies going on all across this commonwealth".

As the session comes to an end, many are already looking to November.
