Ky. lawmakers fail to take action on Rupp Arena financing

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky lawmakers have finished their session without taking action on Rupp Arena.

A vote was not taken on a proposal to provide $80 million in state-backed bonds to help pay renovations to the home of UK basketball. Supporters tried to win over reluctant Republican senators, but time ran out, as the session ended at midnight.

Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear led the push for the bonds. He says the state will continue to seek ways to help the project.
