FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and legislative leaders are pushing a plan to authorize $363 million worth of construction projects at six of the State's public universities.

Beshear said the selling point is that the projects will be paid for entirely by the universities.

He stressed that no general fund money would be used.

Republican Senate President Robert Stivers and Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo said they expect the proposal to be approved by the full legislature.
