State lawmakers passed a pair of capital outlay financing bills Saturday during the last day of the 60-day session.

One bill allocates almost $140 million for more than 70 projects across the state, while another bill reallocates funding from previously approved projects to new ones.

Both bills go to Gov. Bill Richardson’s desk for final approval.
