NC gov't ready to go on building repair binge

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory's administration has decided how it wants to spend a windfall to repair and renovate North Carolina government buildings after years of budget pinching.

The state budget office described Monday where it wants to spend $90 million the General Assembly earmarked to improve state agency buildings. Lawmakers also voted this year to allocate $60 million to fix University of North Carolina system buildings.

The 191 recommended agency projects includes retooling windows at the old Capitol building, painting the Thomas Wolfe House in Asheville and repairing the fire and security system at Tryon Palace in New Bern.

A news release says contracts could be in place for many projects before Christmas if a legislative oversight committee reviews the list soon.
