ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Georgia's proposed 17 billion dollar budget cleared a key House panel Tuesday and includes money for south Georgia colleges and the Moultrie GBI Crime Lab.

The House Appropriations Committee approved the spending plan Tuesday. It includes bond packages to raise 1.8 million dollars for planning for the Ray Charles Fine Arts Center at Albany State University, 6.5 million for a Health and Human Services Building at Georgia Southwestern State University, 4.75 million for renovations to the Lewis and Herring Buildings at ABAC and 10 million for Highway 133.

Colquitt County's delegation also secured money to reopen the Moultrie Crime Lab in July. The full house will have to vote on it, then it goes to the senate.
