The State Administrative Board approved plans today to move the Michigan State Police to a new headquarters.
That's despite some criticism that the $45 million project is too expensive and inadequate.
The state is leasing the existing headquarters from Michigan State University in East Lansing for $1 a year. The contract runs through 2030.
The State Police under the plan would move into a new building in downtown Lansing as early as 2009. The state would pay between $3 million and $4 million a year for rent with the option of buying the building outright.
The Legislature's Joint Capital Outlay Subcommittee signed off on the project in March.
