Connecticut lawmakers are setting aside up to $50 million to help the town of Newtown build a new Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The money was tucked into a bonding bill that passed last week, the final day of the legislative session. It's among municipal grants for infrastructure projects and programs, including planning, property acquisition, site preparation, and construction.

Last month, a Newtown task force voted to demolish the school, where 20 children and six educators were killed in December, and erect a new building on the site.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the state left it up to the town to decide what to do with the school.

Efforts are also being made to secure federal money.
