MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is proposing a $1 billion school construction bond issue, the largest capital improvement project in more than a decade.
The bond issue would be the largest through the Public School and College Authority for school construction since 2007 when lawmakers approved a $1.07 billion bond issue at the urging of then-Gov. Bob Riley.
Ivey first announced the project in her State of the State address on Tuesday night.
The bond issue will provide money to every city and county K-12 school system and to two- and four-year colleges.
