Capital Outlay Bill
Signed by Governor Johnson

Last year's capital outlay bill which was vetoed in April, 2001, contained approximately $1,500,000
in public works projects for each state senator and about $900,000 for each state representative.

Those projects were not funded and this year's available funds were greatly reduced. Typically, in the
2002 session, senators received about $800,000 and state representatives got about $480,000.

Approved and signed capital outlay projects sponsored by Senator Rod Adair are as follows:
