“We appreciate the Governor’s diligence in crafting his version of the state budget and will continue to review the documents provided and welcome input from him as the budget process unfolds.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Kentuckians were among workers who made phone calls for Warnock and Ossoff. 

We did it. We won.

Led by folks on the ground in Georgia, working people across the country went above and beyond to get the vote out. We elected the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff: two pro-union champions who will become our newest senators and will fight for working people.
