Today, the Senate passed its version of the FY15 capital budget bill. The $2.1 billion budget includes $1.1 billion in federal funding and $1 billion in state funding. In spite of the limited funds available compared to past years, Senate District Q received a little over $76.7 million in appropriations. Below is a list of all the projects in my district that are in the FY15 capital budget. This does not include other region wide capital funding such as Southeast government agencies and the marine highway system. The bill (Senate Bill 119) now goes to the House of Representatives where it will be referred to the House Finance Committee for further review and additional public hearings.
