House Adds Items to Senate’s Capital Budget

The House added the items to the portion of the Capital Budget that will require voter approval for bonds.  They passed legislation needed to put a $397 million question to voters in this year’s November election. If approved at the polls, the measure would issue Bonds for education projects across the state.  Finance Co-chair Bill Stoltze (R-Chugiak-Mat-Su) said the bonds would come through a low-interest federal program called Build America Bonds.
