(5) The Governor’s budget must include the proposed expenditures for the capital construction program for the ensuing biennium and the proposed expenditures for preliminary planning of the construction projects included in the capital construction program for the biennium following the ensuing biennium. The budget also must include dollar estimates of the cost of the capital construction projects included in the capital construction program for the succeeding years of the period determined by the Governor under subsection (1) of this section.
