Today, State Representatives Louis Terhar (R-Cincinnati) and Terry Johnson (R-McDermott) applauded the passage of House Bill 490 by the Ohio House, legislation designating January 31st as Omphalocele Awareness Day.
This month, I voted in support of Senate Bill 310, also known as the Capital Budget bill. This legislation invests a total of nearly $2.6 billion in funding across Ohio for projects like infrastructure, workforce development and the arts. A considerable portion of the funding goes toward supporting repairs and renovations at primary and secondary education facilities through the Ohio School Facilities Commission. In addition, part of the funding goes toward higher education needs, such as facility maintenance and learning programs. For Cincinnati, I believe there were three major investments that will foster better care for some of our most vulnerable citizens.
