Concerns about state debt has slowed construction on courthouses around Kentucky after a decade where the state built or expanded 60 courthouses.
Since 2005, the state has completed 26 judicial centers and 14 remain under way at a cost of $590 million.
The General Assembly hasn’t funded new courthouses, however, in two years and doesn’t have any new ones funded in the proposed Senate and House two-year budgets being debated.
