Gov. John E. Baldacci last week signed into law an act to authorize $160 million of TransCap Trust Fund revenue bonds over four years for investment in bridge construction and preservation in Maine.

Baldacci, a Democrat, on Thursday signed the act into law after the Legislature on Tuesday passed the bill. It was introduced by Transportation Committee chairman Rep. Boyd Marley, a Democrat, on behalf of Baldacci, and passed the House with bipartisan support by a vote of 124-20.
