Maryland House OKs state capital budget

The House of Delegates on Wednesday approved the state's capital budget, which pays for nearly $1 billion in construction projects.

It includes millions for projects at Morgan State University, Coppin State University and others that were initially delayed when Hogan proposed allocating more money to build a $480 million jail in Baltimore City to replace a Civil War-era facility the governor closed last year.

The budget still includes $7 million for the demolition of buildings at the correctional complex. It also includes $280 million for public school construction around the state.

The House vote was 130-7.

The state Senate already approved a version of the capital budget, so a conference committee was set up to resolve the differences.
