House Capital Budget Clears Committee

The House Capital Budget Committee this morning gave unanimous approval to their version of the 2007-09 biennial capital budget.  On a voice vote, both Democrat and Republican members praised the $4.2 billion total funds spending plan which includes $145 million in state funds for University capital projects.  No substantive amendments were made to the bill, meaning the UW Bothell Phase 3 project is still only funded with pre-design monies.  House floor action on the capital budget is expected early next week.
