Possible new GARVEE number: $250 million

The draft that’s being considered by lawmakers to settle the standoff over GARVEE highway bonding has a different total than the two bills that died earlier. It’s $250 million. The last two proposals totaled $246 million, and the governor’s original proposal totaled $264 million. The $250 million reflects the ranges added for possible spending on each project, but is nowhere near enough to spend the top possible amount for each project. Instead, it’s a figure in the middle. The total of the low ends of the ranges for each project is $163 million. The total of the high ends of the ranges for each project is $302 million. But the bill would limit GARVEE bonding to more than $250 million, with each project’s spending to fall within its range.
