COLUMBUS – State Representative Joe Miller (D-Amherst) announced the passage of the capital budget, HB 687, by the Ohio House of Representatives yesterday. The capital budget appropriates resources to state owned infrastructure, colleges, universities, and school districts as well as other community projects.

“I am pleased to see that community projects in the 56th will be funded with capital appropriations from the state,” said Rep.

$ 900,000 for Lorain Nord Center’s Lorain County Crisis Receiving Center
