The Senate Finance Committee got its first look at the capital budget Wednesday.
It’s essentially the last key piece of legislation toward adjourning.
It’s a $1.3 billion budget, with about $1.1 billion coming from federal funding.
The capital budget underwrites construction and road projects, plus one-time funding for other initiatives.
This year’s proposed budget is close to last year’s, reflecting the state’s ongoing recession, underpinned by chronically low oil prices.
