Rep. Brenner Votes To Send Community Improvement Legislation To Governor
SB 310 invests in Ohio's communities, encourages economic development
 
 

During yesterday’s session, State Representative Andrew Brenner (R-Powell) voted in support of Senate Bill 310, legislation that helps fund various community improvement projects around the state. Having cleared both legislative chambers, the bill now awaits final consideration by Governor John Kasich.
 
Senate Bill 310, also known as the capital budget bill, invests a total of nearly $2.6 billion in funding across Ohio for priorities 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.
 
"The residents of Delaware County pay a lot of tax money to the state, so it's important that we get as much of that back in this district as possible," Rep. Brenner said. "We have been working diligently on getting our tax dollars back in Delaware County to fund these local improvements. They will benefit the residents and businesses in this area, and I am proud to confirm their inclusion in this bill."
The final version of the bill includes the following projects in Delaware County:
• Strand Theater Renovation
• Columbus Zoo Entry Village and Japanese Macaque Exhibit
• Delaware Economic Development and Entrepreneur Center
• Otterbein University STEAM Innovation Center
 
In addition, part of the funding goes toward higher education needs, such as for facility maintenance and learning programs.
 
SB 310 passed the Senate on April 20th before receiving hearings in the House. It is expected to soon be signed into law by Governor Kasich.
