The article reports that Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell proposed putting an $800 million environmental bond referendum before voters in May 2005 and a capital budget that includes using nearly $325.5 million in bond fund proceeds. Rendell proposed both items along with $23.84 billion in spending from the general fund for the 2005-2006, fiscal year. The $800 million referendum would go to fund Rendell's proposed Growing Greener II program. Rendell proposed putting the referendum before voters last year, but it got bogged down in the legislature.
