Gloomy budget forecasts in Kentucky mean less construction on college campuses

Oct. 7, 2009
Legislature is unlikely to approve many projects in current economic climate

From The Lexington Herald-Leader: Events like this week's ceremonial ground breaking for an $18.6 million high-tech research building at the University of Kentucky in Lexington will likely become rare at state universities over the next two years. Gloomy state budget forecasts for the next biennium mean the legislature won't be able to approve many, if any, new public construction projects. So leaders at the state's eight public universities and community college system are bracing for rejection as they present wish lists full of large construction projects to lawmakers in coming months.
