Gov. Beshear Honors Fallen Floyd County Officers
The Governor recognized three officers and a K-9 who were killed in the line of duty on Thursday, June 30, in Floyd County. Gov. Beshear honored Capt. Ralph Frasure, Deputy William Petry and Officer Jacob Chaffins for their service and dedication to protecting the commonwealth.
“Last Thursday was a tragic night for our commonwealth. Heartbreakingly, we lost three heroic officers and a K-9, making the shooting Kentucky’s deadliest incident for law enforcement in nearly 100 years,” said Gov. Beshear. “Please continue to think about Capt. Ralph Frasure, Deputy William Petry and Officer Jacob Chaffins. They will never be forgotten.”

Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan 
Kentucky’s AFCs include all 11 interstate routes and eight parkways. The charging stations are required to be fast charging and will be located every 50 miles, with four chargers per station. Through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program, Kentucky will receive $69.5 million in federal funding over five years for this project. With matching funds, it will be a total of $86.9 million. Gov. Beshear expects Kentucky to qualify for more funds to expand the state’s corridors.
COVID-19 Update
Gov. Beshear said the state is experiencing a slight escalation of cases, with 10,191 cases announced June 27 through July 3. The positivity rate is also experiencing a slight increase at 15.75% on July 3. Overall hospitalizations in Kentucky, as well as the number of patients in the ICU and on a ventilator, are increasing, but they are not rising proportionately to rising cases.

Kentucky Just Reported the Highest Annual Growth Rate in 31 Years
Governor delivers the highest and now the second-highest revenue surpluses in state history
Relief to Help Families Save
While the state’s economy is booming, the Governor understands that Kentucky families are still impacted by record gas prices and higher costs of consumer goods, and he is working to provide relief. To help families the Governor has recently:
  • Issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency and activating the state’s price gouging laws to protect families from grossly overpriced gasoline and motor fuels.
  • Issued an executive order to freeze vehicle taxes for two years at the January 2021 assessed value due to the pandemic-related rise in used car values, saving Kentuckians approximately $340 million in property tax reductions.
  • Stopped a 2-cents-per-gallon hike in the state’s gas tax that would have taken effect on July 1 and that would have resulted in a price hike on both regular and diesel fuel.
  • Issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency over the baby formula shortage that has impacted the nation and the commonwealth.

  • 50 cents in Hopkinsville;
  • 34 cents in Lexington;
  • 45 cents in Louisville; and

State Real Property Tax Decrease
In more positive news for Kentuckians, Gov. Beshear shared that the state real property tax rate has decreased, dropping from 11.9 cents to 11.5 cents per $100 assessed value. The Kentucky Department of Revenue is required by statute to set the real property tax rate each year by July 1. This is the second annual decrease in the real property tax rate – the only two years the rate has decreased since 2008.
Highest Annual Growth Rate in 31 Years
Gov. Beshear said that Kentucky’s record-breaking economic momentum continues this week as the state’s fiscal year 2022 General Fund receipts grew at the highest rate in 31 years. On Monday, the Office of State Budget Director reported 14.6% growth over last year and noted that General Fund receipts totaled $14.7 billion, exceeding the budgeted estimate by $945.4 million. This is the second-highest revenue surplus ever – surpassed only by last year’s record amount – and the budget surplus is expected to be even higher once the books are closed on spending later this month.
Gov. Beshear Announces Additional $12 Million for Western Kentuckians
Today, the Governor announced an additional $12 million from the Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund to assist individuals impacted by the December 2021 tornadoes with specific unmet needs. This assistance is targeted at long-term recovery and will be managed with the assistance of local long-term recovery groups (LTRGs).

988 Suicide and Mental Health Crisis Lifeline
Gov. Beshear said this upcoming weekend, Saturday, July 16, the easy-to-remember three-digit mental health crisis hotline, 988, will operationally launch in the commonwealth.
The move is part of a nationwide departure away from the 10-digit National Suicide Prevention Hotline, 800-273-8255, which remains available during the changeover to help those in need.
COVID-19 Update
Commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Public Health Dr. Steven Stack provided an update on COVID-19, noting that while hospitalizations, ICU bed and ventilator use all remain at some of the lowest levels we have seen since the beginning of the pandemic, the virus is still actively spreading in Kentucky. Approximately two-thirds of Kentucky counties are at a medium or high COVID-19 community level.
