Legislature authorizes $100M to be spent on infrastructure

At an afternoon press conference, Senator Harper, Representative Froerer, Representative Brooks, and DAS’s Marilee Richins and Jim Russell announced that the legislature had passed a bill granting a $100M bond to be spent on infrastructure and economic development in the northwest quadrant. This money will not be used to build the correctional facility, rather, it will be used to build the supporting infrastructure like roads and utility lines for the surrounding area that will benefit everyone in the northwest quadrant.
