Cache Valley Daily Wednesday, Mar. 07, 2018
The 2018 session of the Utah legislature will all be over on Thursday, March 8 at the stroke of midnight. State Senator Lyle Hillyard, R-Logan, feels that it has been a very good session this year and does not expect any last-minute negative surprises. ... "I was very, very pleased that we were able to get the (Utah State University) science building finished," Hillyard exclaims. "That's been a project for about two years. We did it piecemeal because of the budget, with clearly the understanding that we would finish the rest this year. ... He says it would cost a lot more to have to come back next year or the year after that to get the building finished. The Life Sciences building is currently under construction and the legislature approved $38 million of the $45 million price tag for the building.
