COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) today announced that the Ohio House of Representatives passed House Bill 292, which creates a study committee that would study the aerospace and technology industry.


The Aerospace and Technology Study Committee would consist of 13 members, including three state senators, three state representatives and one appointment by the governor. The six members from the House and Senate would then appoint six more members representing entities like the aerospace industry, the military, or academia.


“The aerospace industry is a major contributor to Ohio’s economy and legacy,” Romanchuk said. “Further studying the industry and finding ways to promote it will only add to that legacy, including to the benefit of the 179th Air Lift Wing in Richland County.


Beginning July 2014, the committee would be tasked with providing an annual report of its findings and suggestions to the Senate President, Speaker of the House and Governor. Specifically, the report would include strategies for promoting the industry, ideas for the sharing of resources and other research and development procedures.


HB 292 now heads to the Senate for further consideration.
