The article reports on the approval of a $265 million in spending for school projects by Arkansas officials. Projects approved for 2006 include a new junior high school in the Marion School District, and a door hardware at an elementary school in the Two Rivers School District. For some districts, such financial aid is enough to avoid bond issuance, while others use the money to reduce the amount of debt they must issue to finance projects.
