Kentucky House Approves Road Projects

by Tony McVeigh, Kentucky Public RadioThe Kentucky House, voting mostly along party lines, has approved three-point-four-billion-dollars in bonded road and bridge construction projects for the next biennium. The vote was 67-32, with only two Republicans supporting the bill. Minority Leader Jeffrey Hoover of Jamestown says the measure punishes Republicans who voted against the revenue bill approved by the House last week.“What the majority party is doing here today is like a schoolyard bully, who’s about to get beat, so they just take the ball and go home, rather than playing fairly and finishing the game," he says.The House also voted 72-27 for a new Transportation Cabinet budget, with seven Republicans voting Yes and no Democrats voting No. Both measures now move to the Senate.
