Governor Perdue Announces Bond Package for Department of Technical and Adult Education

Governor Sonny Perdue announced a $93 million bond package for Georgia’s Department of Technical and Adult Education (DTAE) as part of his FY09 budget proposal. This bond package will address critical new construction and equipment needs in Georgia’s technical colleges. The bonds are part of Governor Perdue’s FY09 budget proposal, which was presented to the Georgia General Assembly during the Governor’s annual State of the State Address last Wednesday.

“These new projects will help Georgia’s technical colleges keep pace with demand and will help DTAE continue to provide excellent lifelong education and training for all adult Georgians and corporate citizens,” said Governor Sonny Perdue. “Improving education and growing our economy are my top priorities. Meeting the increasing needs of our technical colleges across the state is an investment in both.”

The Governor’s budget also includes $12.2 million cash for minor repairs and renovations (MRR). The list of Governor Perdue’s FY09 DTAE bond projects is attached.
