FRANKFORT — Senate President David Williams, R-Burkesville, told the Senate Transportation Committee that he thought differences between the House and Senate version of a bill that would set up an authority for the state’s mega-bridge projects will not be settled on Friday.
Williams comments came as the House and Senate hammer out differences on key pieces of legislation before the General Assembly adjourns for two weeks. Williams proposed an amendment to H.B. 102 that would place oversight over the bridges program under the Kentucky Turnpike Authority. The House version creates a new authority.
The Senate Transportation Committee approved Williams amendment Friday morning and the full Senate is also expected to approve the changes.
The bill will then go to conference and the two sides will work out their differences over the next two weeks, Williams said.
