ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The Governor's proposed budget for next year includes money for a major new building at Albany State University.

A new fine arts building been planned for years.  Money has been in budget plans before, but it's always been cut during budget negotiations.

The governor's proposed budget includes $1.8-million  to help move the project forward.

"Absolutely, we've been waiting for a long time," said ASU Fiscal Affairs Vice President Larry Wakefield. "We are growing. We're crowded and really need this space."

The fine arts building will be built on what is currently a piece of grassy land behind the Acad building
