Capital request presented, again

Last week, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system presented the 2008 bonding request to the House Higher Education committee, this week it was the Senate's turn. Yesterday, Chancellor James McCormick, Trustee Clarence Hightower, and Al Johnson, Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities, along with student, faculty and staff representatives, presented the $350.2 million request to members of the Senate Higher Education Budget and Policy Division. Committee members asked thoughtful questions, including wanting to know about projects that are ready to go. There is interest in projects that can move quickly in hopes of stimulating the economy.
