FRANKFORT, Ky. – “Despite the failure of the Senate to support the Rupp Arena and convention center project, we will continue to seek ways to bring this project to fruition.

“Rupp Arena, the convention center, Lexington and the surrounding region need this overdue renovation and improvement to attract the conventions and investment that modern facilities bring to city centers. Delaying this project needlessly delays positive economic development for the central Kentucky region, but I am confident that we will forge a path forward.” – Gov. Steve Beshear.
