COLUMBUS – State Representative Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today announced the passage of the capital budget, House Bill (HB) 687, by the Ohio House of Representatives. The capital budget appropriates resources to state owned infrastructure, colleges, universities and school districts, as well as other community projects. The capital budget is typically passed every 2 years with this year’s budget appropriating over $3.5 billion to counties across Ohio, $191 million of that being allocated to community projects. 

“I am proud to have voted for House Bill 687, which will direct around $5 million to projects throughout Lucas County. This year’s capital appropriations budget will invest Ohioans’ own taxpayer dollars into local and regional projects that will strengthen our communities throughout the 46th District. I am looking forward to seeing these dollars in action,” said Rep. Sheehy. 

Rep. Sheehy helped to secure $750,000 in funding for a number of community projects in the 46th District, including: 

$500,000 for the Broadway Corridor Business Incubator;
$150,000 for the Nuestra Gente Community Center ;
$75,000 for the Danny Thomas Park Amphitheater.

Overall, Rep. Sheehy advocated for $4.925 million in funding for a number of projects of countywide significance, including: 

$250,000 for the Toledo YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter;
$1.2 million for the Toledo Museum of Art;
$600,000 for the National Museum of the Great Lakes Expansion.

The capital budget now moves to the Senate for further consideration before heading to the Governor’s desk.
