TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A House committee authorized issuing up to $60 million in bonds to renovate Kansas State University's College of Architecture. The project approved Tuesday is the only capital improvement project sought by six state universities to be funded in the House budget proposal. The Lawrence Journal-World reports the university is running its College of Architecture, Planning and Design in dilapidated buildings, parts of which were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Representative Mark Hutton of Wichita says he made the motion to include the project in the budget because Kansas State waited for years while major projects were funded at other universities. The bonds would be issued in fiscal year 2016, with the first $3.7 million payment in 2017 coming from the state Educational Building Fund.
