State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) today announced that a bill to fund community improvement projects was introduced in the state legislature.

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 and workforce development. The most significant portion of the funding goes toward supporting repairs and renovations at education facilities through the Ohio School Facilities Commission, as well as facility maintenance and learning programs at public institutions of higher education.

The capital budget’s investments are consistent with the legislature’s commitment of fiscal responsibility and a stronger, more competitive economic climate.

The introduced version of the bill includes the following projects in Seneca and Sandusky counties: 

  • Fostoria Learning Center, Higher Education Improvement, $800,000

  • Seneca County Museum, Repairs and Renovations, $50,000

  • Northwest Ohio Community Technology Learning Center in Downtown Fremont, $675,000

  • Terra State Community College, Campus Renovation and Upgrade Projects $1,500,000

  • Bellevue Jungle Junction Indoor Playground, $200,000

  • Rodger Young Park, Basketball Court Upgrade, $50,000

“Our local communities right here in Seneca and Sandusky counties are set to receive a tremendous amount of support from the State of Ohio,” Rep. Reineke said. “I am very proud of the local leaders who spearheaded these projects. The investments we are making into workforce development and education will help bolster our economy by training skilled workers for in-demand professions. The return on investment in the form of new jobs and expanding businesses will pay dividends for many years to come.”

The capital budget is the product of close collaboration between Governor John Kasich, state legislators, state agencies, presidents of Ohio’s colleges and universities, economic development leaders, local officials, and others within Ohio’s communities.
