Kentucky House leaders are joining the mayors of the state's two largest cities in lobbying for a local sales tax option.

A bill to amend the Kentucky constitution to allow voters to choose projects funded by a 1 percent sales tax has been delayed in the House.

The measure, championed by the mayors of Louisville and Lexington, does not have enough votes to pass in that chamber right now, according to Democratic Majority Whip Tommy Thompson.
