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

During yesterday’s Ohio House session, State Representative Anthony DeVitis (R-Green) 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.

“Investment in these community projects is essential in helping improve the overall quality of life for Ohioans,” said Rep. DeVitis. “It was an honor for me to advocate for these projects.”

The final version of the bill includes projects in Summit County, including:
• $750,000 for Gorge Dam Removal
• $400,000 for Green Central Park
• $400,000 for Nimisila Spillway and Bridge Demolition and Replacement
• $200,000 for Summit Law Enforcement Training Center and Indoor Firing Range

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.
