Senate Could Finish Special Session Friday

After reviewing nearly 400 pages of road project legislation, Gov. Steve Beshear Wednesday exercised his line-item veto authority, returning some projects to their original funding sources in order to restore fairness and equity to the Road Plan legislation. Wednesday’s action on the Road Plan also eliminates the Senate’s single stated reason for not passing the Transportation budget, according to a press release from the governor's office.
