DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Senate has approved a $350 million plan to put Colorado State University buildings at the National Western Stock Show site in Denver.
The renovation plan is pitched as a major revitalization effort. The measure already passed the House.
The bill approved Tuesday details a plan for Colorado to enter lease-purchase agreements over the next 20 years. The money will be used to build several new Colorado State University buildings including a new equine center.
The financing plan won preliminary approval despite opposition from some that the National Western Complex would get unfair priority over other projects.
