Voinovich targets Brent Spence Bridge

U.S. Sen. George Voinovich will be in Cincinnati on Monday for a closed-door confab with Ohio Department of Transportation chief James Beasley, among others, to talk about the Brent Spence Bridge.

Voinovich and others on Capitol Hill have been under growing pressure to come up with ways to pay for the $3 billion bridge replacement and other high-dollar infrastructure needs.

While the press will not be allowed to sit in on the chat, Voinovich may talk to reporters afterwards about whether he brings good news from Capitol Hill.

Why is this a closed door meeting?

Enquirer should demand access when the ODOT director and Groinovich are at the table. Smells like insider deals to me.

It would be nice if McConnell would start to work on bridge funding.

Make sure there's enough Kleenex at the meeting. That old RINO Voinovich likes a good cry now & again.
