CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A key Indiana budget panel has given its final approval to more than $1 million in improvements at southern Indiana's Falls of the Ohio State Park.
The News and Tribune reports the State Budget Committee on Friday approved freeing up $400,000 in state funds for the project.
State Rep. Steve Stemler says that money will be matched by local donations and a grant from the James Graham Brown Foundation to cover the upgrade's $1 million cost.
The featured attraction at the Falls of the Ohio State Park is a 400-million-year-old fossil coral reef.
Stemler says many of the park's current interpretative exhibits are nearly 20 years old and in need of renovation of replacement. He says the building also needs an upgrade to its heating and air-conditioning system.
