The following is a statement from Joe Meyer of Northern Kentucky United regarding the Public-Private Partnership Bill passed in the Kentucky General Assembly yesterday:
“We appreciate the leadership and strong, united stance of the Northern Kentucky delegation on this issue. The Kentucky General Assembly has spoken loud and clear: there will be no tolls on the Brent Spence Bridge.
“Much needed maintenance will resume on the bridge, and Governor Bevin has committed to studying the Cincinnati Eastern Bypass. It is time to reset the conversation, and revisit the size and scope of the project to come up with a plan that appropriately addresses the region’s transportation needs.
“We look forward to continuing our work with Governor Bevin, the Northern Kentucky delegation to the General Assembly, and our many business and community leaders to ensure that Northern Kentucky’s voice is appropriately represented in the process. “
