COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Matt Huffman (R-Lima) joined by Finance Chairman, Senator Matt Dolan (R-Chagrin Falls) announced plans to pass a $3.514 billion Capital Budget Bill supporting Ohio's infrastructure and local community projects.
The legislature generally approves a capital budget every two years, and the bill funds needed improvements to public services and facilities across the state, including schools, roads and bridges, and mental health and addiction facilities.
Ohio’s sound fiscal management helps make this investment happen.
“The capital budget invests in vital community projects that often have limited funding sources,” said President Huffman. “Our members understand why these dollars make a real difference in our neighborhoods around the state.”
Projects approved for the Capital Budget follow strict guidance to qualify, and local leaders across the state work hard to comply.
“Mayors, county commissioners and leadership from big cities to small towns know the difference these dollars make in showcasing their communities, said Senator Dolan. “I want to thank them for their dedicated and detailed efforts in making sure these projects were ready and qualified for consideration.”
