ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland board has approved $161 million in unallocated school funding.
The Board of Public Works approved the money on Wednesday. That brings the total amount allocated for school construction to $349 million for the next fiscal year.
The board approved $187 million in initial funding for school construction in January. Representatives from 19 jurisdictions came before the board to seek portions of the remaining $161 million.
