FRANKFORT, Ky. – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear and bipartisan lawmakers joined together to sign House Bill 2.

This bill provides much-needed support to complete the Bowling Green Veterans Center, which will provide compassionate care for Kentucky veterans, according to the governor’s office.

Additional funds provided by the bill will amount to over $16 million.

The center will create over 100 new jobs and provide 60 beds.

Beshear says the facility is being built on 25 acres donated by the inter-modal transportation authority at the Kentucky Transpark in Warren County.

The center is expected to be completed in 2024.
