On Tuesday, leadership in the Ohio House of Representatives appointed State Rep. Jack Cera (D-Bellaire) to the Finance and Appropriations Committee. This committee oversees Ohio’s expenditures through the biennial budget process and the capital appropriations process. 


Rep. Cera served on the Ohio House Finance Committee in the past, where he chaired the development section of the committee and oversaw 29 state agency budgets.


“I am happy to receive this appointment, as I feel eastern Ohio needs someone to serve as their voice on funding issues that impact this region and our livelihoods,” said Rep. Cera.


The first action of business that Rep. Cera had in the House Finance Committee included a “yes” vote today for the renewal of Senate Joint Resolution 6, a proposal that maintains the state’s long-standing commitment to have voters approve state bonds for local infrastructure improvements. This funding is necessary to help local governments maintain roads, bridges and infrastructure across the state.


“The dollars allocated for this purpose helps ensure public health, safety and welfare. This funding is vital for the economic well-being of Ohioans,” said Representative Cera.


SJR 6 passed the Ohio House today by a vote of 90-2.
