STATE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
(2008-04-29)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State lawmakers remain at odds over
spending hundreds of millions of dollars on university buildings,
airport runways, trails and other state projects.
And time is running out to strike a deal.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says Thursday is the
deadline to approve spending to upgrade security and terminals,
extend runways and make other improvements at more than 100 local
and state airports.
Republicans want to focus on airports and other projects for
which the federal government will provide funding.
But Democrats say Michigan also can't afford a delay in
university construction projects such as a life sciences building
at Michigan State University.
The dispute largely stems from philosophical differences over
how much to spend.
