Bevin made his comments after a large teacher rally in Frankfort on Friday
Bevin urged the legislature not to override his vetoes earlier in the week, and asked them to spend the last two days of the legislative session creating a balanced budget that he would sign into law.
McDaniel said HB 200 would boost base per-pupil funding for K-12 education to a record level of $4,000 per student in each fiscal year while providing money for school buses.
By asking them to vote for another period to get the tax increase in a election 25, the veto put law makers at a position.
The House also voted 94-2 and the Senate voted 34-4 to override a veto which will make it easier for agencies to leave the state retirement system.
Another piece of legislation also raised education funding, providing more than $70 million over the next fiscal year for textbooks, state aid and flex health care benefits.
Bevin had vetoed both bills, the budget and tax bills, warning the new taxes would not generate enough money to cover the new spending.
Gov. Matt Bevin said children were "harmed, some physically, some sexually" because they were left alone while people attended Friday's rally supporting teachers in Frankfort. Watson told The Associated Press he assumes the culprit was someone marching with the teachers, since they have been wearing red.
As that reality started to sink in at the Capitol, the governor expressed his frustration with the teachers who called in sick to rally to reporters.
The pension bill that Bevin signed will mostly affect future workers, especially teachers, who will no longer receive conventional pension plans. "They've done nothing to improve that process", said Carpenter. He says lawmakers could pass amendments to the bills that have already passed. The rally took on a festival-like atmosphere as some teachers sat in lawn chairs or sprawled out on blankets. But Gov. Matt Bevinvetoed the funding and sales debts, calling the latter "sloppy" and "non-transparent".

Kentucky's two-year operating budget includes record new spending for public education, fueled by a 50-cent increase in the cigarette tax and a 6 percent sales tax on some services including home and auto fix. "If we want to create a world without child abuse, we can not tolerate the governor's comments".
Lawmakers' votes on Friday come with a price.
Because of the protests, "hundreds of thousands of children" were likely left at home without childcare, he said.
A news release from the Kentucky State Police says crowd size inside the Capitol and the Annex building "may be limited" for safety reasons. Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young's hit "Teach Your Children" bellowed from loud speakers before speeches began.
It also seemed odd watching Democrats voting to support a Republican governor, one majority strongly dislike.
Kentucky lawmakers are reconvening Friday for a scheduled two-day wrap-up of the legislative session.
Teachers in other states are also pushing for better pay and conditions, inspired in part by a successful strike last month in West Virginia.
The unrest comes amid teacher protests in Oklahoma and Arizona over low funding and teacher pay.
"It's entirely inappropriate and perverse that the man sitting in the governorship would criticize Kentuckians who stood up today for teachers, public employees and our public education by insinuating that their presence in Frankfort today caused a child to be sexual assaulted", Kentucky Democratic Executive Director Mary Nishimuta said.
