Albany -- There's also good news about money for a new Performing Arts Center at Albany State University.

The project is on the Board of Regents funding list. And the Governor proposes giving one point one million dollars for the Ray Charles Fine Arts Center.

Faculty members say that's a big step toward having the center built.

"We are very confident that of course is going to happen. Once that money is approved than in '09 we can actually begin the process of visualizing our building with what its going to look like. What is going to go in it," said Dean of Arts and Humanities, Dr. Leroy Bynum.

There was some controversy over the center.

Ray Charles donated three million dollars to ASU for the center, but university leaders said there were no restrictions on the use of that money and distributed half of it in scholarships.
