The AOC's fiscal year (FY) 2023 priority projects are focused on imminent needs. In his written testimony Blanton emphasized security and safety throughout the Capitol campus, "Funding will support the lifespan of the facilities as well as address critical needs ranging from preserving priceless artwork to replacing roofs, installing emergency generators and improving campus security... Life and safety issues are high on the list."
