The State Bond Commission will meet Friday to allocate more than $100 million in borrowed state money.
Of the 31 projects on the agenda, three stand out.
– $1.3 million for renovations to the Capitol and Legislative Office Building, including an “upgrade to the public address system,” roof work, windows and a boiler.
– $300,000 (to go with $788,724 in federal money) to build new offices for the Connecticut River ferries in Chester and Rocky Hill.
– $9 million (on top of $7 million allocated in January) for Bridgewater Associates new landlord. According to the Office of Fiscal Analysis, this money is not included in the $115 million First Five package. The agenda anticipates a total of $25 million in state remediation funding, bringing state aid for Bridgewater, the world’s largest hedge fund, up to $140 million.
