State budget talks in Kentucky became contentious between House and Senate leaders during a conference committee, as House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Senate President Robert Stivers debated Rupp Arena financing and Washington politics.
An eventual compromise was reached by the leaders, who allowed Gray to testify on the nature of the renovations and alternate funding sources for the project.
The state's Budget Conference Committee is expected by members of both chambers to last through the weekend.
