Remember the State Bonds Virginians Approved Two Years Ago? They were not enough!

Back in November 2002, Virginia voters approved bonds that included $846 million for construction at Virginia's colleges and universities. Last week, NewsChannel8 reported that "projects are more expensive than school officials had anticipated." Worst hit are community colleges where "seven out of nine projects that have gone to bid since January are over budget by six percent to 50 percent or more, with only two or three bidders each." Just asking, but is it possible that the government officials at some of those schools did a lousy job of estimating costs in the first place?
