LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A local option sales tax bill has been filed in Kentucky's State House.  

The bill would allow local residents to vote on raising taxes to fund specific projects. 

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has supported the idea for a long time. He says citizens deserve a right to vote on investing in their communities.

Fischer says he has bi-partisan support for the bill. 

Similar measures have been proposed in the past, but did not move forward.
