ABSTRACT
The article provides an overview of the fiscal condition of Kentucky. According to state officials, Kentucky's investment earnings for its retirement system have been positive with returns exceeding the 8.25 percent goal. However, Kentucky Retirement Systems administrators claim that the plan is in jeopardy because of the failure of legislatures to appropriate the funds needed to the plans adequately funded. Executive director William Haynes has organized a campaign to force Governor Ernie Fletcher to increase the state's contribution to the retirement system for the biennium.
