In closing, I am happy to announce the federal government has approved our request for grant funding to begin work on completing the mega Brent Spence Bridge project. This project has a big impact on our state’s overall economy. As Senate Transportation Committee chair, I am proud of the legislature’s leadership in allocating 250 million general fund dollars in the biennial road plan to make this possible. I also want to acknowledge the hard work of Representative Sal Santoro, House Transportation Committee chair. Finally, a big thank you to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Jim Gray who has been an instrumental partner in this endeavor.

I look forward to hearing from you in the 2023 Legislative Session.
