"Who will benefit from the bond? Well, the bond drafters were smart. They spread the wealth across the state. Seventy three counties will receive funds directly; the rest are eligible to get water and sewer projects. Fifty eight community colleges and all 17 campuses in our university system will receive the lion’s share of the dollars. Agriculture, our state’s largest industry, will benefit from a new plant science complex, assisting farmers small and large."
