State buildings in need of repair

Monday, March 30, 2015

Many state buildings are in need of long-deferred repairs with a collective price tag of about $1 billion, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Rep. Chris Turner, D-Grand Prairie, said he has a plan to fix the buildings — by drawing money from the state’s rainy-day fund, which could grow to $11.1 billion by 2017. UT Arlington is mentioned as needing more than $7 million in repairs this year. The work would include repairing roofs, replacing air-conditioning systems and lights, and fixing plumbing systems.
