Denver (AP) Governor Bill Ritter says higher education will get a one-time boost of about $200 million in construction money from a new law governing oil and gas revenue.

Ritter signed the measure Monday in front of a giant excavated pit on the Auraria campus that will become the new science center for college students.

The governor says the bill also will provide money for 11 other college construction projects across the state.
