Lawmakers still without agreement on road budget

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Lawmakers still haven't reached an accord
on appropriations in the state's transportation budget.

State Rep. Sannie Overly said Monday that House and Senate
lawmakers remain "fairly far apart" on proposed construction
projects to be included in a six-year, $10 billion road plan.

Lawmakers are scheduled to reconvene Thursday for the final day
of this year's legislative session, which allows only two more days
for negotiators to work out differences in the competing proposals
offered by the Democratic-controlled House and the Republican-led
Senate.

Overly, a leading negotiator for the Democrats, said the House
and Senate clearly have different priorities for the Road Fund
money.
---
The legislation is House Bill 266.
