On Thursday, Mayor Greg Fischer unveiled his proposed city budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1st. The mayor had warned that it would be an austere spending plan; metro government has been faced with a multi-million dollar shortfall. Phillip M. Bailey covered the story for WFPL and joined us Friday on Byline to explain where the city’s money will go, and why.

Tuesday’s primary election set the stage for November’s general election here in Kentucky and nationally. WFPL’s Gabe Bullard and KPR’s Kenny Colston joined Phillip later in the segment to talk about election results—from undecided voters in the presidential election to who will serve on the Metro Council.
