COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) today applauded the overwhelming House support of Senate Joint Resolution 6, which authorizes nearly $2 billion in funding for infrastructure improvement projects across the state.


SJR 6 puts before voters a ballot initiative to renew funding for the Ohio Public Works Commission (PWC). The PWC provides financing for local government infrastructure improvements such as roads, bridges, solid waste disposal, water supply, storm water collection and waste water treatment. The renewal of these bonds, which will be put before voters on the May ballot, would authorize $1.875 billion of funding over 10 years without raising taxes on Ohioans.


"As a past member of the District One Public Works Commission, I have seen the value that municipalities receive through collaboration on local infrastructure projects," Rep. Anielski said. "All Ohioans will benefit from the funding."


Under the program, grants or loans for local governments are available for up to 90 percent for repair or replacement projects, and up to 50 percent for new or expansion projects.


The Ohio Public Works Commission was created in 1987 after being approved by voters as an amendment to the Ohio Constitution and has twice been reauthorized by voters. Since that time, it has provided more than $3 billion in assistance to local governments for infrastructure projects. The program’s current bonding authority is set to expire soon.
