COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives today passed Amended Substitute Senate Bill 1, which establishes the OhioMeansJobs Workforce Development Revolving Loan Program and Fund to strengthen job training and continuing education opportunities for Ohioans.


Am. Sub. S.B. 1 authorizes a revolving fund to provide loans, funded by $25 million in existing revenue from casino licensure fees, to Ohioans seeking job training or education. Loans include up to $10,000 for students pursuing training in certain high-demand fields and up to $100,000 for institutions for certain programs.


“The loans provided through this fund will help our state in getting more people jobs,” Rep. Romanchuk said. “I’m pleased to see passage of yet another jobs bill.”


Am. Sub. S.B. 1 passed by a unanimous vote and will be sent back to the Senate for concurrence.
