Governor Kaine has approved nearly half of the $2.9 million Virginia Tech requested from the state general fund to cover costs associated with the mass shootings on campus in April.
The university will be reimbursed $1.3 million from the general fund's contingency reserve, spokeswoman Delacey Skinner said Tuesday.
Most of the money - $755,000 - will go for archiving computer and telephone voicemail records for legal purposes, she said. The records were requested by the state attorney general's office.
President Charles Steger has said the school has committed to spending about $8 million to recover from the shootings, including
the cost of adding police and counselor positions.
