Capital construction program will give UIS funds for Public Safety Building

The governor and legislature are in disagreement over state's budget, and a $29 billion statewide capital construction program is a large cause of that.

The program consists of an initial multi-billion-dollar road-construction plan and measures to create revenue to pay for it. A follow-up measure has about $1.5 billion for additional infrastructure and transit spending.

As part of the plan, UIS will get $4 million for the construction of the Public Safety Building on campus.

The budget was the topic of a June 2, 2009, article in the Galesburg Register Mail.
