PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island House will vote on funding for two new Warwick high schools on Tuesday afternoon.

The funding would go towards building new buildings for both Pilgrim and Toll Gate high schools.

If the bill passes through the General Assembly, then Warwick would be allowed to take out bonds to cover some of the costs.

The Senate recommended passage in a vote last week.

The project would likely cost around $350 million, with the state covering $150 million of that.

Voters would be making the final decision in November, should the bill pass. There would be a question on the city’s ballots to approve going forward with the project.
