DALLAS — The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees gave preliminary approval to $141 million of revenue bonds Friday that will finance improvements to the main campus in Fayetteville.

The proposal is the second-largest bond package ever sought by a UA system school. The largest was a $150 million issuance approved in 2004 for a new hospital and upgrades at the UA Medical Sciences Center in Little Rock.
