Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - A ceremonial signing for the Kentucky bill to help finance an expansion of the Kentucky International Convention Center will take place on May 1.

House Bill 401 authorizes a transient tax for local hotel rooms. Guests will pay an extra one percent on top of the six percent Kentucky sales tax.

That money will be added to the $56 million in state funds for a renovation of the convention center downtown.

Governor Steve Beshear, Mayor Greg Fischer and the Kentucky State Fair Board CEO will be there fore the bill signing.
