KY Lawmakers still without agreement on road budget

Apr 10, 2012

Kentucky lawmakers still haven't reached an accord on appropriations in the state's transportation budget.  State Representative Sannie Overly says House and Senate lawmakers remain far apart on proposed construction projects to be included in a six-year, $10 billion road plan.  Legislators are scheduled to reconvene Thursday for the final day of this year's legislative session.  This only allows two more days for negotiators to work out differences in the competing proposals offered by the Democratic-controlled House and the Republican-led Senate.  Overly is a leading Democratic negotiator.  She says the House and Senate have different priorities for the Road Fund money.
