Statewide Teachers Strike Called Off

A statewide teachers strike in Kentucky is called off.

Kentucky teachers voted not to walk out just hours after the State Senate unanimously approved a health bill for next year that includes better health insurance benefits. State lawmakers were working under an October 27th deadline to upgrade the insurance plan proposed by Governor Fletcher's office because teachers were threatening to strike if their current benefits weren't restored.

Fletcher signed the revised bill into law last night.
