Governor shifts playing field on capital projects

Governor Sarah Palin last night vetoed a hundred seventy one capital projects that had been in the supplemental budget she got two years ago. But she invited sponsors to bring most of them back in another budget, where they’ll get a favorable reception. In explaining her temporary veto of a hundred fifty five projects, she recognized they are high community priorities – and advised that they should be included in the Budget set aside for capital projects that is in the House Finance Committee now.
