A capital construction program to fix the state’s crumbling infrastructure and to put thousands of Illinoisans back to work – without a tax or fee increase – has been passed by a unanimous vote of the Senate.

Senator Bill Brady says the program will provide more than $29.2 million for 10 projects affecting 75.29 miles in the 44th District.

“This is a program that moves us in the right direction and I want to compliment the Senate leaders on this new era of compromise and working together. It has been far too long since we have had a capital bill,” Senator Brady said. “Although this is a small one, it does meet our objectives in this construction season. This program will help us provide safe roads and bridges for the families of Illinois, and much needed infrastructure improvements for the businesses that employ our workers.”

The 44th District Senator said the capital program is fiscally responsible and geographically-balanced, and will allow projects to get under way during this construction season.
