Ky Senate leader wants new ways to pay for road projects

Bowling Green, Ky – Kentucky's ability to fund its six-year highway project is in serious doubt. The federal Highway Trust Fund is about to go broke. Kentucky Senate President David Williams says the Commonwealth needs to pass a bill that would create state and local infrastructure authorities that could issue bonds to pay for things like highways and bridges. Williams spoke to WKU Public Radio over the phone from Frankfort.
