COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A panel of top Missouri officials has given approval to issue bonds for $38.5 million to renovate an engineering building at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

The Board of Public Buildings on Thursday gave final authorization for the bonding, which will pay to fix aging parts of Lafferre Hall. Portions of the College of Engineering building were built in 1935 and 1944.

The bonds also will pay for a new lab.

The Missouri Legislature in May approved $200 million in bonding for repairs and renovations to existing college buildings and $400 million for state buildings. Lafferre Hall is the first to get bonding approval.

Renovations are scheduled to be completed by December 2016.
