COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville) 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.


“Cancer has affected everyone in some way or another,” said Rep. Hill. “This legislation will help fund the Ohio Breast and Cervical Cancer Project. Diagnosing cancer in its earliest stages is the best way to combat it, and now more Ohioans will have access to that technology.”


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