Rep. Jonathan Dever Votes To Fund Community Improvement Projects
SB 310 invests in Ohio's communities, encourages economic development

During today’s session, State Representative Jonathan Dever (R-Madeira) voted in support of Senate Bill 310, legislation that helps fund various community improvement projects around the state. Having cleared both legislative chambers, the bill now awaits final consideration by Governor John Kasich.

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. A considerable portion of the funding goes toward supporting repairs and renovations at primary and secondary education facilities through the Ohio School Facilities Commission.

“The work we have done as a General Assembly and delegation from Hamilton County ensures vital community projects receive much-needed financial resources,” said Rep. Dever. “I am particularly proud of our efforts to assist our local governments in their capital projects, as well as assist the drug addicted in our communities.”

The final version of the bill includes projects throughout Hamilton County including:
• Cincinnati Center for Addiction Treatment Expansion
• Chamberlin Park Improvements
• Blue Ash Summit Park
• Reading Flood Plain Study and Remediation Planning
• Cincinnati Art Museum
• Hebrew Union – American Jewish Archives
• Boys and Girls Hope Home of Cincinnati
• People Working Cooperatively – Whole Home Modifications

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

SB 310 passed the Senate on April 20th before receiving hearings in the House. It is expected to soon be signed into law by Governor Kasich.
