DALLAS - The Louisiana House on Monday unanimously sent to the Senate a bill authorizing the sale of $500 million of state general obligation bonds for capital outlay projects in fiscal 2010.

The 95-0 passage came three weeks after the House failed to approve HB 3 on May 15 by the required 70 votes. The initial vote in mid-May was 62 to 24 in the 105-member body, with 19 lawmakers not present.
