FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - A developer is proposing the state's sales tax fund a bridge project in northern Kentucky. The proposal comes as Louisville and southern Indiana drivers prepare to deal with tolls for years.
While tolls will be a reality to pay for the Ohio River Bridges Project, developer Matt Toebben has introduced a plan to remove Kentucky's 32 cent per gallon gas tax and instead increase the state sales tax from 6 cents to 7 cents per dollar to fund the Brent Spence Bridge project.
State representative Charlie Miller (D-Louisville), co-chair of the Joint Transportation Committee, told WAVE 3 News he'll oppose any measure that allows state sales tax to be used for the Brent Spence Bridge.
"I think the state should operate the same way and I'm going to do everything I can to see that sales tax is used the same as it is in Northern Kentucky," said Miller.
However, state leaders like Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Mike Hancock said tolls will have to happen to complete the Brent Spence Bridge project.
"From our perspective, it really is a function of what's in our toolbox today to work with and that's where we're focused," said Hancock. "Tolling is necessary to round out the cost of the Northern Kentucky project."
The Brent Spence Bridge carries I-71 and I-75 across the Ohio River between Covington, Kentucky and Cincinnati. According to the Associated Press, tolls on the Brent Spence are opposed by the entire 13-person Northern Kentucky General Assembly delegation.
Lawmakers, like Miller, said using state sales tax would require amending the Kentucky Constitution.
