Missouri Senate backs fix-it list of 300 building projects to be financed through bonds

Share/Save/Bookmark

JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri — Missouri senators have approved a to-do list of more than 300 items that could be funded through a bonding proposal.

The projects are detailed in a resolution passed Monday by a 26-4 vote. The bonding is authorized under a separate bill passed last week by the Senate.

Both measures now go to the House for consideration.

The plan would allot $200 million for a new mental health hospital in Fulton. An additional $400 million of bonds would be split among state facilities and public colleges and universities.

The bonds generally would fund maintenance and repairs that were put off when state revenues dipped during the recession.

State Office of Administration Commissioner Doug Nelson said Monday that some of the maintenance projects now are occurring, even without the bond funds.
