A $29.9 billion capital construction program to fix schools, roads and municipal infrastructure improvements that have languished for more than a decade –  and provide tens of thousands of construction jobs in the process – will include more than $190.3 million for projects in the 44th District, according to Senator Bill Brady.

The Illinois Senate voted May 20 to pass three bills that would set into motion the public works program.

“It’s been 10 long years since there has been a comprehensive capital bill passed in Illinois. I support the communities, universities, schools and transportation infrastructure that will benefit from the projects in this program. But I believe it would be better to do a regular and predictable capital program every year by using our revenues to bond an annual program, rather than asking the working families of Illinois to bail us out with higher taxes, higher fees, and expanded gambling,” Senator Brady said.
