The state Bond Commission is expected to meet on Friday, Jan. 25, in Room 1E, Legislative Office Building, at 10:30 a.m.

The $5,346,000 for the Bristol Housing Authority will finance alterations, renovations and improvements for revitalization of state low and moderate housing units, said a release from Nicastro and Wright.
