  • "The federal government has ordered a possibly years-long review of proposed changes to the Ohio River Bridges Project. Last month, Mayor Greg Fischer, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels proposed cutting lanes from the east end bridge, dropping pedestrian paths from the downtown bridge and rebuilding Spaghetti Junction in place. The cuts, they say, would shave about $500 million off of the projects’ $4.1 billion cost. As the Courier-Journal reports, the changes will require new environmental research." [WFPL]
  • "The House passed a bill Monday that would make it easier for the federal government to track and block [gun] permits for those who have been declared mentally ill." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "Fourteen protesters have ended their three-day sit-in at Governor Steve Beshear’s office. And while the protesters didn’t get the concessions they wanted from the governor, they say the effort was worthwhile, in part because of the response they received from the public. The group, known as Kentucky Rising, occupied the governor’s office from Friday morning through Monday morning to protest Beshear’s support for the mining process commonly called mountaintop removal."
