Brent Spence BRidge

Some 2000 county government officials including many from Kentucky have participated in the National Association of Counties conference in Ohio. 

A northern Kentucky judge says participants spent a significant amount of time on health related issues.

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear says it will cost taxpayers $7 million every month lawmakers do not take action to replace the Brent Spence Bridge connecting northern Kentucky with Cincinnati.

Years of inspection reports obtained by a newspaper show that a high-traffic bridge over the Ohio River is deteriorating.

The possibility of tolls to pay  for a $2.6-billion bridge replacement project in Northern Kentucky has enraged conservatives and become an issue in the U.S. Senate campaign.

Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell and Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes have ideas—very different ideas—to keep tolls off the Brent Spence Bridge. The issue highlights the different campaign philosophies by Kentucky's major party Senate candidates.
