The special session could end Friday.

The Kentucky Senate is expected to vote on the road budget. A Senate committee passed it Thursday, after restoring 50 million dollars in projects to Senator David Williams' district. Those projects had been vetoed by Governor Beshear. It's prompted criticism back and forth that continued Thursday.

"As far as I'm concerned, he needs to work on his anger issues, and he needs to be less vitriolic and less confrontational, with me in particular," Williams told ABC 36. "If he wants to harm the people in my district because he doesn't like me, that's okay. But it's not very becoming of a governor of the commonwealth of Kentucky to conduct himself the way he has."

Governor Beshear says he vetoed the projects because they were too many of them, and they were taking money away from other districts.
