The Durango Herald – March 26, 2014DENVER – Allies of Fort Lewis College have devised a plan to rescue funding to rebuild the college’s outdated science building.
Until last week, FLC leaders thought they were sitting pretty as the state’s second-highest priority college construction project, as designated by the Legislature’s Capital Development Committee. The college has been pushing for more than a decade to rebuild its old engineering and geophysics building.
Rep. Ed Vigil, D-Fort Garland, announced a plan Wednesday to save FLC and other colleges. It hinges on the state having money left over after it balances its books for the 2013-14 budget year this summer.
