State Representative Anne Gonzales (R-Westerville) today applauded the Ohio House of Representatives’ passage of House Bill 497—the state’s capital budget bill—which appropriates funding for local projects throughout Ohio and the 19th House District.


House Bill 497 invests $2 million to rehabilitate a historic school on the South Side to create the Reeb Community Center, which will house Columbus City One-Stop offices, a non-profit education center, and adult education and workforce training.


Additionally, the budget allocates $50,000 for a new video projection system for the Jeanne B. McCoy Center for the Arts in New Albany.


The capital budget focuses on the most pressing needs of state government, schools, and economic development within Ohio’s communities.  It is a collaborative process involving state and local leaders, the economic development community, the arts community, and others to provide guidance on local investments, while balancing the state’s need for fiscal restraint and responsibility.


House Bill 497 passed with strong bipartisan support in the House and now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.
