Bill on school construction heads to Mead

Mar 2, 2012 The Associated Press

CHEYENNE (AP) -- A proposal to spend about $600 million on school construction and renovations over the next two years is on its way to Gov. Matt Mead.

The Wyoming House voted 51-8 to give final approval to Senate File 105 on Thursday.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that representatives rejected an amendment to reduce the funding to $245 million.

Rep. Matt Teeters, a Republican from Lingle, said the bill had grown by over $83 million since it was first introduced. With revenues declining, he said the amendment would give the Legislature time to consider what it can afford.
