During today’s session, State Representative Andy Thompson (R-Marietta) 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.


“We had many worthy submissions; the projects selected had the most immediate, positive impact according to the parties at the table. I am grateful that my colleagues share my opinion that these will make a positive impact on each county and our region.”


The final version of the bill includes projects in Carroll, Harrison, and Noble counties.
• Carroll County Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum ($250,000)
• Cadiz Bike Trail/Public Infrastructure Connectivity Project ($400,000)
• Noble County Happy Time Pool ($45,000)


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.
