FRANKFORT, KY (FOX19) -

There were new developments Wednesday in the battle to fund a Brent Spence Bridge replacement.

The Kentucky Senate's transportation committee voted to restore funding for the project.

This could effectively reverse a decision by the Kentucky House earlier this month which stripped the funding as part of a two-year transportation project bill.

The committee also approved a bill that would ban tolling on the Brent Spence Bridge.
