COLUMBUS—State Senator Jay Hottinger (R-Newark) this week announced the Senate passage of the state's Capital Budget, a $2.62 billion investment in Ohio's infrastructure, highlighting local community projects in Licking County.
The Ohio General Assembly generally approves a capital budget every two years with the goal of funding needed improvements to public services and facilities across the state, including schools, roads and bridges, waterways and parks. The House and Senate versions of the bill, simultaneously introduced and vetted in the lower- and upper-chambers, both significantly increase the capital investment in mental health and addiction services facilities.
Senator Hottinger worked with the local government and community leaders in Licking County to understand their needs and priorities.
"I am pleased with what we were able to accomplish together for our communities through this Capital Budget," said Hottinger. “These investments in crucial infrastructure and economic development projects will surely enhance the quality of life for these communities."
