MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Vermont lawmakers have approved a $76 million package of borrowing for capital construction projects.

On the list: another installment in a new state office building in Bennington, $6.5 million for school construction and $4.5 million for expansion of broadband Internet service.

The bill excludes some items that in other years might be included in a capital construction bill, including $10 million toward the construction of new space for mental health patients. That was included in the general fund budget bill, and is being paid for out of enhanced federal Medicaid funds.

Among other major expenditures that are in the capital bill are $4.7 million for a new Health Department laboratory in Colchester.
