TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A group in Vigo County is still working to save convention center plans at the Hulman Center.

Six members of the Capital Improvement Board want the State Budget Committee to delay their vote, releasing money to ISU for Hulman Center renovations.

ISU got approval from education officials to move forward with those renovation plans last month.

If the Budget Committee also gives approval - the Convention Center idea for a 90-day delay.

They hope to regroup with ISU and save the original convention center project.
