Today the full House considers HB 2, the Capital Outlay bill. That’s the list of state and local construction projects authorized for the next fiscal year.
“We had about 1500 requests this year, representing about $4.6 billion,” Mark Moses with the Office of Facility Planning and Control told the House Ways and Means committee Tuesday. He also said the projects listed in HB 2 already exceed the money available.
“This year’s over-appropriation amount is $258-million.”
Then Wednesday, Moses told the House and Governmental Affairs committee their peers had added more projects to the list.
