Columbus - 

State Representative Rick Perales (R-Beavercreek) today applauded the Ohio House’s passage of House Bill 497—the state’s capital budget bill—which appropriates funding for the redesigning of the entrance to the Fairfield Sports Complex.

A total of $300,000 will be invested to reduce traffic flow and increase traffic along an alternate route, providing economic development for area businesses.

“This project has been on the books for a number of years,” said Rep. Perales. “With the recent closure of State Route 444 through Wright Patterson Air Force Base, funding this project is more important than ever for the viability of this business district and collaborative opportunities between WPAFB and Fairborn. I looked forward to final approval of the capital budget in short order.”

The capital budget focuses on the most pressing needs of state government, schools, and economic development within Ohio’s communities. It is a collaborative process involving state and local leaders, the economic development community, the arts community, and others to provide guidance on local investments, while balancing the state’s need for fiscal restraint and responsibility.

House Bill 497 passed with strong bipartisan support in the House and now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.
