Kentucky state government still needs a budget for its upcoming fiscal year, and that means there is still talk of proposed taxes on communications services in the Bluegrass state, including satellite TV.

As early as next week, Kentucky lawmakers could begin meeting on the state budget, reported StopSatelliteTax.com (http://www.stopsatellitetax.com). The state's fiscal year begins July 1. The Web site also reported that Kentucky Gov. Ernie Fletcher's proposed 7.62-percent tax on telecommunications services - including satellite TV - is still on the table for lawmakers to consider.

In April, Kentucky's General Assembly ended its 2004 session without passing a budget, a move that stopped the debate on proposed taxes for communications services in the state. The legislature's failure to pass a budget was attributed to differences between Democratic lawmakers and the Republican governor, who proposed a "tax modernization" plan that included cuts in income tax but proposed the communications tax.
