State Rep. Juanita Brent (D-Cleveland) today issued a statement announcing $15 million in funding for Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority in Cuyahoga County, which was passed with Democratic backing in the state’s transportation budget earlier this year.


“If Ohio wants to reduce/eliminate child poverty and increase the population, we must invest in public transportation,” said state Rep. Brent. “This $15 million is a small step in the right direction as far as required funds to address these issues are concerned.”
