Proposal would give Gov. Beshear extra year in office

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Governor Steve Beshear would get an extra year in office and Kentucky's statewide elections would be aligned with national elections under an amendment that has passed the senate.

If it makes it through the house where democrats are skeptical, it would have to be ratified by voters next year.

If passed, Kentucky elections for constitutional offices would move to 2016.

If Beshear got an extra year, he would become the longest serving governor in Kentucky history.
