O'Malley Announces $336M For School Construction

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration says $336 million in school construction funding and upgrades will be in the budget for the next fiscal year.
    
The governor made the announcement in Baltimore on Monday.
    
The budget will include $325 million for the state's Public School Construction Program. That will include $25 million for air conditioning in schools.
    
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown says in a statement that air conditioning is a necessity that helps fight against mold and allergens in the air. He says the administration won't rest until all 1,396 of Maryland's schools are safe places for children to learn.
    
The O'Malley administration says it has allocated $2.4 billion for school construction since O'Malley, a Democrat, took office in 2007.
