JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has released $1 million in state funding to help rebuild a northeast Missouri vocational school destroyed by fire.

Lawmakers included funding for the Pike-Lincoln Technical Center in the current year's budget, but Nixon vetoed the appropriation.

The Legislature overrode the veto in September. But Nixon then froze the spending while determining if there was enough money in a particular fund to pay for it and whether the fund could legally be used for the project.

Nixon's budget director said Monday that the $1 million for the school had been released last week.
