State’s Capital Budget Advances With School Construction Funding Intact

As the days of the legislative session wane, and the major issues surrounding the state’s operating budget (including the shifting of teacher pensions, and state revenue increases) remain unsolved — progress continues on the state capital budget, long term projects depending on bond proceeds.

From coverage in the Herald-Mail:

[A] $1.12 billion capital budget tentatively approved Wednesday and passed Thursday by a 39-7 vote.

The House of Delegates is getting closer to having its own version of the capital budget ready for a preliminary vote.

The General Assembly has until April 9 to pass the legislation and reconcile any differences in bills supported by the House and Senate.

A report detailing the Senate’s proposed capital budget plan is available online here.
