Representative Christine Chandler has released the list of 2019 capital outlay requests she made for the communities in her distric.

She told the Los Alamos Reporter that in recent years, capital outlay monies have been severely restricted due to budgetary constraints.

“Because of the budget surplus, this year funds are available to address the many needs in the district.  In evaluating which projects to support, I focused primarily on infrastructure projects, for example mutual domestic water systems and community ditches,” Chandler said.  ” I also worked to ensure that monies were fairly distributed across District 43.  Los Alamos County listed as a priority infrastructure funding for its affordable housing project, an important project to which monies were allocated.”

Early in the legislative session, the House and Senate Finance committees conduct hearings on projects that are part of introduced legislation but does not take action on them. Then the House Taxation and Revenue Committee of the Senate Finance Committee conducts hearings on other statewide projects approved by legislative leadership for possible inclusion in the substitute bill that replaces the original legislation.
