The House of Representatives passed the 2018 Supplemental Capital Budget on a 96-2 vote Tuesday afternoon. The 19th district is expecting $15.5 million from the supplemental construction budget.

19th District Representative Brian Blake said, “This budget funds important higher education, conservation, housing, safety and community development projects that will improve the lives of families and communities across our district,” The Aberdeen Democrat added, “All of these projects are job creators that will enrich our quality of life by boosting growth and economic development in our area.”
