STIVERS-PORTS
Republican state Senate president urges support for Kentucky's 7 river ports

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 26, 2014 1:54 PM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Republican Senate President Robert Stivers says he wants to review the infrastructure of Kentucky's seven river ports when lawmakers return to Frankfort in January.

Stivers' comments come after he visited several western Kentucky counties last week as part of what he said was a nonpolitical trip for the eastern Kentucky Republican finishing up his second year as Senate president.

Stivers visited the Elvis Stahr Harbor in Fulton County, where officials say they have only been able to dredge the harbor once every two or three years because of federal and state funding shortfalls. They said they need about $1 million to dredge the harbor every year to make sure it can stay open.

The port on the Mississippi river handles about 1 million tons of cargo each year.
