NKYUnited Statement on Governor Bevin's BSB Comments

“NKYUnited is disappointed by Governor Bevin’s comments at Wednesday's press conference. He appears to depart from his longstanding opposition to tolls on the Brent Spence Bridge.

Governor Bevin has repeatedly committed to his constituents in Northern Kentucky that he would not support tolls on the Brent Spence Bridge as long opposition to them remained strong. Opposition to tolls on the Brent Spence Bridge is as strong as ever in Northern Kentucky. Nothing has changed.

“Governor Bevin should honor the promises he made both during his election and in the early days of his administration. NKYUnited appreciates Governor Bevin's openness to alternatives for solving the region's transportation needs. Northern Kentucky opposes not just tolls on the bridge but the size and the scope of the project, which will damage the region. We appreciate his ongoing support for our concerns and look forward to continued dialogue on the topic."
