COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives passed House Bill 292, which creates a study committee that would examine the aerospace and technology industry.


The Aerospace and Technology Study Committee would consist of 13 members, including three state senators, three state representatives and one appointment by the governor. The six members from the House and Senate would then appoint six more members representing entities like the aerospace industry, the military, or academia.


“Anything we can do to promote this industry should be afforded the highest consideration,” Hill said. “The aerospace and technology industries have job creation potential that not many other industries can offer. Ohio’s legislature has the responsibility to study the industries and come up with a plan to bring the best ideas and companies into our state.”


Beginning July 2014, the committee would be tasked with providing an annual report of its findings and suggestions to the Senate President, Speaker of the House and Governor. Specifically, the report would include strategies for promoting the industry, ideas for the sharing of resources and other research and development procedures.


HB 292 now heads to the Senate for further consideration.
