During today’s session, State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) 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.


“These projects are the result of the cooperation we have between state and local leaders in government, business and the community,” Rep. Reineke said. “By investing in education and workforce development, as well as community projects, we will see important growth in Bellevue, Fostoria, Fremont and Tiffin. This will allow us to continue the important work we have done to create jobs, grow the economy and give our communities strong momentum for the future.”


The final version of the bill includes 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


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.
