State Representative Jeff Rezabek (R-Clayton) today proudly announced that an amendment he submitted to the state operating budget impacting the Montgomery County Port Authority was included in the House’s budget proposal, Substitute House Bill 64.

The amendment would appropriate $2.5 million from the state’s General Revenue Fund to the Montgomery County Port Authority for the Midtown Redevelopment Initiative in Fiscal Year 2016.

“I am excited for this project to get under way,” Rezabek said. “I believe it can have a huge impact in revitalizing Dayton, as well as the agriculture community in Montgomery County. I want to thank my colleagues in Montgomery County and throughout the Miami Valley region for their support of this measure.”

Several local state lawmakers put their support behind the amendment: Reps. Mike Henne (R-Clayton), Jim Butler (R-Oakwood), Niraj Antani (R-Miamisburg), Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton), Rick Perales (R-Beavercreek), and Jim Buchy (R-Greenville).

The amendment is one of many components of Sub. House Bill 64, which was unveiled by House Republicans during a press conference this afternoon.
