Maryland Senate passes $1.1 billion capital budget

ANNAPOLIS — The Maryland Senate has signed off on a $1.1 billion capital budget proposal.

Senators voted 39-7 Thursday to approve the bill, which now moves to the House of Delegates for consideration.

The plan calls for the state to spend $351.39 million to build and renovate schools, $3.78 million to acquire and design renovations of a post office in Annapolis, $38.67 million to buy new helicopters for the state police and $2.5 million to design an expansion of the Baltimore Convention Center.

The General Assembly has until April 9 to pass the legislation and reconcile any differences in bills supported by the House and Senate
