State agencies are requesting more than 1,500 capital projects totaling more than $500 million, members of the reformed Long-Range Capital Planning Commission were told Tuesday during their first meeting.
Ben Chase, senior planner with the Office of Management and Enterprise Services’ division of capital assets management, said the requests were submitted by state agencies between February and June.
It’s early in the session, so the major issues before lawmakers remain mainly un-addressed and unresolved. Our main topics this week:
> Tax credit changes may be dead.
> A workers’ compensation bill could be in a Senate committee by Tuesday.
> Conspiracy theory may thwart water conservation plan.
> State Capitol may get $10 million for repairs next week.
> Equalization board should give lawmakers more money to spend.
