BRADENTON, Fla. — The new bi-state authority created by Kentucky and Indiana to develop a $4.1 billion finance plan to build new bridges over the Ohio River met for the first time Tuesday in an organizational session.

“We’re taking a historic step today,” said Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, who attended the meeting along with Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, and Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson. “The task before this authority is challenging but critically important,” Beshear continued. “The work done here will benefit both of our states for generations to come.”
