O'Malley Proposes $370M in School Construction

Amount would be second highest single-year funding in state history

Gov. Martin O'Malley says he will be proposing more than $370 million for school construction in the fiscal year 2013 budget.

O'Malley made the announcement on Tuesday with House Speaker Michael Busch in Annapolis.

The governor says the amount, if approved, would be the second highest-single-year funding level in state history. O'Malley also says it brings the administration's six-year school construction commitment to nearly $2 billion.

O'Malley also says the administration will include $15.3 million for a bond program that funds school improvements. Another $6 million will be included in the Aging Schools Program.
