COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Anthony DeVitis (R-Green) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Bill 112, legislation to allow taxpayers to contribute a portion of their income tax refunds to the Ohio Breast and Cervical Cancer Project.


The Ohio Breast and Cervical Cancer Project was established in 1994 by the Ohio Department of Health to address the need for economically disadvantaged women to detect breast and cervical cancer in its earliest stages. In the years since its inception, the BCCP has provided screening, diagnostic testing, and case management services to more than 70,000 low-income women. The funds from the legislation will be used for breast and cervical cancer screening, diagnostic, and outreach services to uninsured or under-insured women.


“By having this contribution box available on individuals’ tax forms, it will increase awareness to those who want to make contributions in the fight against these cancers,” Rep. DeVitis said.


House Bill 112 passed unanimously and will now move to the Ohio Senate.
