With no sign of Massachusetts opening the way for state aid for school construction, a number of school districts are investing over short-term debt they issued for construction projects. School municipalities in the commonwealth are planning to renew their bond anticipation notes. Other states in the U.S. have been deducting local aid as their budgets are restrained. Funding between 50and 904570360f school construction projects were authorized by the U.S. Department of Education.
