BRADENTON, Fla. — Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear forwarded a proposed budget for 2010-2012 on Wednesday that he hopes the General Assembly will adopt in a five-day special session later this month.

Lawmakers went home a month ago after their annual legislative session without adopting a spending plan. Since then, Beshear has warned that failure to adopt a budget could lead to a partial shutdown of government for the first time in the state’s history.
