Iowa lawmakers have approved about $77 million in infrastructure spending that will help maintain state buildings and public land.

The state House and Senate both easily approved the budget plan Friday afternoon. The bill will next move to Gov. Terry Branstad for his signature.

The funding will go to projects that include upkeep of state buildings, as well as restoring lakes and enhancing trail networks.

The infrastructure money is allocated from two sources, with most of it coming from the Rebuild Iowa Infrastructure Fund. That fund is financed through gambling revenues and other sources.
