Bond proceeds will benefit academic projects
Arkansas voters will be asked to consider the Arkansas College Savings Bonds proposal on the General Election ballot in November.  The bond sale is expected to result in $150 million in one-time money for higher education, with ASU's share at $9 million. The current plan is to allocate the proceeds as follows: $4.2 million for renovation of the Chickasaw Building as needed for academic space; $3.3 million for matching funds for the Business Building addition; and $1.5 million for the National Lambda Rail project.  The bond proceeds will be far short of what would be needed to construct a replacement for Wilson Hall; however, the Department of Higher Education has recommended $20 million for the replacement project in its capital projects funding request for ASU during the next session of the Legislature.
