   FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- State lawmakers say they are close to an agreement on how to spend $1.2 billion in state tax dollars on road construction.
 
   Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo told reporters Tuesday morning that House and Senate negotiators have reached a deal while Republican Senate Transportation chairman Ernie Harris said lawmakers were close to an agreement. Harris said that it was premature to say lawmakers have reached a deal.
 
   It's unclear how much the total construction plan, which includes federal and state dollars, would cost. Lawmakers have until midnight to reach an agreement. If they don't, Stumbo said the governor will likely call the legislators back to Frankfort for a special session.
