Schools to get construction stimulus

Louisiana schools are in for a $244 million face lift, according to this article in New Orleans CitiBusiness.

The article cites U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu as a source for the news that the state will get over $244 million worth of construction bonds to finance new schools or rehabilitate old ones.

The bonds, which can also be used to purchase land for new schools, are part of the much-maligned federal stimulus act.
