State Representative Doug Green (R-Mt. Orab) 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, workforce development and the arts. The most significant portion of the funding goes toward supporting repairs and renovations at primary and secondary education facilities through the Ohio School Facilities Commission.


A significant part of the funding goes toward higher education needs, such as for facility maintenance and learning programs.


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


The original version of the bill includes projects in Clermont and Brown Counties:


• The Washington Township Lake Stabilization Project – $11,000
• The Historic Batavia Armory - $300,000
• The Gaslight Theatre Building Renovation Project - $300,000
• Child Focus Inc. - $415,000


“Senate Bill 310 is very important to the funding of the State of Ohio,” said Rep. Green. “The Ohio legislature is working hard to get these projects included in Senate Bill 310, and to ensure they remain part of the bill, so they can help local communities.”


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