  • "Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway and Governor Steve Beshear are attempting to assert their role in a pending hospital merger. Questions have been growing around the proposed merger of University of Louisville, Jewish Hospital and Catholic Health Initiatives. The merged hospitals will have to follow Catholic health directives. That means University Hospital would have to change how it handles reproductive health issues and end-of-life care." [WFPL]
  • "State government ended the 2010-11 fiscal year with a $156.8 million surplus — $121.8 million of which will be put into the state's ‘rainy day' fund to help guard against future revenue shortages, the Beshear administration announced Wednesday. The rainy day fund — which held a balance as high as $279 million in 2001 — had been spent down to zero during the economic recession in recent years as state revenues plunged far below expectations."
