ILLINOIS STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 11: Announcement: 2019 Capital Bill
Illinois State House District 11 issued the following announcement on June 12.
Among the accomplishments of the 2019 Legislative Session was the passage of a $45 billion capital bill to address critical infrastructure needs across the state – long overdue improvements to our roads, bridges and railways (referred to as “horizontal” capital projects) and construction and maintenance of schools, universities, water infrastructure needs (also called “vertical” capital).
After much negotiation, I was able to secure funding for several neighborhood schools in the District as part of the vertical capital plan. I want to thank Alderman Matt Martin (47), Alderman Michelle Smith (43), Alderman Scott Waguespack (32) and Alderman Tom Tunney (44) for their input in prioritizing these projects. I look forward to continuing to work with the school communities and CPS to continue to identify further needs for our schools in the coming months and beyond. Additionally, the Lakeview YMCA will receive funding for deferred maintenance projects.
The details of the projects are as follows:
Audubon Elementary – Cafeteria Repairs – $200,000
Lake View High School – Electrical Rewiring/Updating – $600,000
Hamilton Elementary – Expanded Athletic Facility- $750,000
