BRADENTON, Fla. – Kentucky should join 33 states and Puerto Rico and adopt comprehensive enabling legislation that would open the doors for public-private partnerships and their investors at all levels of government, according to Kentucky Chamber of Commerce white paper.

While the Bluegrass State has used traditional contracting with private partners for certain projects, the state “does not have a strategic approach to contracting for services,” the chamber said in a report. “It also does not have – unlike 33 other states – any form of a P3 enabling law for highway and bridge projects.”
