Gov. Neil Abercrombie says the state has allotted $147 million in capital improvement spending for various state projects, including $75 million to fix roofs, plumbing and electrical systems in Hawaii schools.

The governor said Wednesday that the projects are part of a strategy to stimulate the state’s economy by generating job opportunities and kick-starting work that needs to get done. 

The funds released include $12.5 million to build athletic facilities at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, $7.1 million for an electronic system for medical records and $12 million to buy land near Maui’s airport.

Abercrombie said the state will also spend $8 million to replace the roof and deck at the state Capitol.
