The Ohio House of Representatives today approved Senate Bill 310, legislation that helps fund various community improvement projects around the state. Having cleared both legislative chambers, the bill now awaits final consideration by Governor John Kasich.


Senate Bill 310, also known as the capital budget bill, invests a total of nearly $2.6 billion in funding across Ohio for priorities like infrastructure, workforce development and the arts. The most significant portion of the funding goes toward supporting repairs and renovations at primary and secondary education facilities through the Ohio School Facilities Commission.


“Because of close collaboration between the administration, legislators, universities, local officials and the economic development community, I believe this capital budget proposal is an effective and responsible approach to funding improvement projects that are important to the residents of this state,” said Rep. Ryan Smith, Chairman of the House Finance Committee.


A significant part of the funding goes toward higher education needs, such as for facility maintenance and learning programs.


SB 310 passed the Senate on April 20th before receiving hearings in the House. It is expected to soon be signed into law by Governor Kasich.
