Sixty-two percent back a proposed $750 million bond issue for new academic buildings and technological upgrades at the state's colleges and universities.

The state Supreme Court has ruled that its members and other judges don't have to pay more for their benefits because they're shielded from pay cuts by the state constitution.

The survey of 790 registered voters has a sampling error of 3.9 percentage points.
