COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) provided sponsor testimony and introduced a substitute bill for legislation that would create an additional funding source for two private high schools in Cuyahoga County.
Substitute House Bill 313 would create specialty license plates for St. Edward High School and St. Ignatius High School.  With the purchase of the specialty license plates, the school would receive additional funding that would be designated specifically to assist in the emotional and mental well-being of their students, as well as student tuition assistance for the private high schools.
Under the legislation, any Ohio resident who wishes to support one of these schools can purchase the appropriate license plate, which would showcase each school’s design. There would be an additional charge of $40 on top of the original costs for the plate—$10 to be used by the BMV for their administrative purposes and $30 to be directly earmarked to the corresponding school.  Fifty percent of the funds sent to the school will be used for tuition assistance, while the remaining fifty percent of the funds will be used for the emotional and mental well-being of their students. Purchasers of the plates shall remain anonymous from any school database, unless they complete a consent form to release their information to the schools.
“The legislation is an excellent opportunity for constituents to show support for their schools, plus provide the schools with additional resources to further assist their students,” Rep. Anielski said. “Substitute House Bill 313 will create another opportunity to protect our most precious gifts, our children.”

Substitute House Bill 313 awaits a vote out of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
