Gov. Matt Bevin said this week that the state of Kentucky intends to make a major push to land a $1.6 billion manufacturing facility planned by automakers Toyota and Mazda.
Bevin told a group of automotive suppliers and industry officials gathered in Lexington on Monday that the state will pursue the proposed factory and mentioned a 1,550-acre site in Glendale, Ky., as a prime location.
"Why shouldn't it be here?" Bevin said.
