DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware lawmakers have given final approval to spending bills for the fiscal year starting Wednesday.

The state House on Monday approved a $708 million capital budget for construction and transportation projects. House members also voted unanimously for a $55 million package of grants for nonprofit groups, community organizations and volunteer fire companies. Both bills cleared the Senate last week and now go to Democratic Gov. John Carney for his signature.

A $4.5 billion operating budget for fiscal 2021 is already on Carney's desk after being approved by both chambers last week.
