CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The state is expected to provide about $24 million for the renovation of the University of Virginia's Rotunda.

The university said Tuesday that the funding is included in the General Assembly's 2013 budget.

UVa. is conducting a campaign to raise the remaining funds needed to complete the $51 million project.

Senior vice president Robert D. Sweeney says in a news release that the campaign has received nearly $6 million in commitments.

The first phase of the project included replacing the roof and exterior repairs. That work was completed recently.

During the second phase, the focus will be primarily on the dome's interior and on the Rotunda's wings. The work includes replacing the building's mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.
