SALEM – Rep. Jason Conger (R-Bend) today voted to secure funding and bonding authority for various projects throughout Deschutes County. The Legislature approved HB 5202, which will provide $500,000 in lottery-backed bonds to Central Oregon Community College.
“These funds will help renovate and expand the mathematics and science laboratory on the Redmond campus,” Rep. Conger said. “Along with the financing we approved for OSU-Cascade’s graduate program, the 2012 capital construction bill will further strengthen our area’s institutions and help provide more educational and workforce development opportunities for our citizens.”
The Legislature also approved $1.8 million in funding for the renovation of the DMV Bend office.
“The cost of construction for renovating this facility will be paid from state highway fund revenues,” Rep. Conger said. “This renovation of an existing state-owned building is an investment in our future here in Central Oregon and will improve DMV services for Bend residents for years to come.”
