Items funded in capital budgets often include land acquisition, repair, renovation and construction of state facilities; and acquisition, construction and repair of state parks, trails, interpretive centers, campground facilities, forests, wildlife management areas, dams and flood control structures.
Capital budgets also include grants to local governments for repair and construction of schools, parks, bridges and waste-water treatment facilities. Historically, major capital budget bills have been passed in even-numbered years.

All local government capital budget requests are due in June, and edits to projects submitted in June are due in October of odd-numbered years.
