Scope and Content Note

This series consists of the Ways and Means Committee's copy of expenditure estimates for capital projects planned by state departments during fiscal year 1940-1941. The projects cover land acquisition, construction, and equipment purchase principally at state prisons and training schools, normal schools and colleges, hospitals and laboratories, and state parks. The three-page estimates briefly describe the project, provide justification for the project, and detail projected expenditures for the fiscal year. In many cases, several capital projects were planned for a single facility during the year. Separate estimates are included for each project.
