Biomed Building receives funds
The Louisiana Joint Legislative Budget Committee approved an additional $300,000 toward the cost of the building after construction costs were nearly $1 million over budget.
"We can now move forward and award the contract," Tech vice president of administrative services Jerry Drewett said.
Drewett said the new building had spent a few years on the state's capital outlay list.
"It was the only new building approved by the state last year for any university," he said.
