Freudenthal Will Put More Money Into Building Schools

Cheyenne, Wy – The Governor is releasing his budget Thursday and one of his proposals would put a significant amount of new money into the budget for school construction. Dave Freudenthal says the money is needed as the state continues to meet the mandate to improve school buildings. Freudenthal notes that this will mean the state has spent about a billion dollars since 1999 on school construction. The Governor also is recommending some solutions to rising construction costs, such as encouraging districts to build more then one school at the same time.
