Missouri House committee endorses bonding plan, includes $200M for mental health hospital

Share/Save/Bookmark

JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri — A Missouri House panel has endorsed a bonding proposal that calls for spending at least $200 million on a new state mental health facility in Fulton.

The measure would authorize a total of $400 million of bonds subject to voter approval later this year. The House Budget Committee advanced its measure Tuesday.

Senators earlier approved a $600 million bonding plan for the Fulton State Hospital, higher education institutions and other state facilities. The Senate version would not require voter approval.

Projects in the Senate bonding measure would be for repair or renovation of existing facilities — except for the Fulton campus. The House version doesn't have that restriction.


Bonding bill is SB723.
