FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 30, 2003

Governor Authorizes Over $17.4 Million for 2002 Capital projects
Corrections, Human Services Targeted For Improvements Work to begin immediately

SPRINGFIELD ‑ In an ongoing effort to improve some of the state’s infrastructure, Governor Blagojevich authorized today to proceed with more than 30 projects throughout the state. The projects are funded through the Capital 2002 budget that totals $17,405,745 million. The projects will begin immediately.
 
“To help us decide which facilities to renovate, we choose projects that met the criteria we set of promoting education, health care, public safety and economic development. These projects meet our requirements,” said Gov. Blagojevich. “These renovations will help improve energy efficiency, rehabilitate an historic site, repair public spaces, and update state facilities that in the long run will be more cost effective to fix now.”
 
These projects were overseen by the Capital Development Board (CDB), which manages all state construction projects. They will provide critical remodeling and infrastructure improvements that would likely cost more if delayed. The Governor’s Office, CDB and the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget reviewed all projects and gave authorization to proceed based on priority.
