Connecticut lawmakers are about to approve the first round of funding to construct a new Sandy Hook Elementary School building.
Lawmakers have set aside $50 million to help Newtown build a new school.
The facility would replace the old school, where a gunman killed 26 students and teachers in December. Sandy Hook students have been attending classes in nearby Monroe.
A task force in Newtown voted to tear down Sandy Hook and build a new school.
