In Brief: Capital construction bill heads back to Senate after House approval

in Government spending/News

A measure that would provide about $50 million in state money for various government construction projects won final approval from the House on Tuesday.

SF 162, which died once in the Senate before being resurrected and sent to the House, provides financing for projects including a refurbishment of part of the University of Wyoming’s War Memorial Stadium and new facilities at several community colleges.

The bill had originally provided $15 million for work at the university, but that amount was reduced to $10 million and under the bill, the money will only be released as matching funds to money raised by the university.

The bill was once killed by the Senate, but senators rescinded their vote and sent the measure to the House for review.

The measure will now return to the Senate so senators can decide whether they will support the changes made by the House.
