June 9, 2021

COLUMBUS—Today, Senator Michael Rulli (R-Salem) joined his colleagues in passing Substitute House Bill 110, the Senate's budget proposal for Ohio's FY 2022-2023 biennium.

"In this budget, the Ohio Senate cut taxes and provided funding for a number of projects that will have a direct impact in the Mahoning Valley," said Rulli. "I am proud we are taking significant steps to help the working men and women of Ohio, as well as local students who will make up the workforce of tomorrow."

Major provisions in the Senate's plan include a five percent income tax cut for working Ohioans, a financially sustainable school funding plan that starts with the professional at the front of the classroom, investments in local governments, and boosting health and human services.

Additionally, Senator Rulli highlighted a number of key provisions that will have a major impact in the the local community and across the state of Ohio, including:

  • Securing $5 million for Eastern Gateway Community College to create new workforce initiatives

  • Providing Youngstown City Schools a pathway out of the Academic Distress Commission

  • Appropriating $1 million for the Mahoning Valley Campus of Care

  • Allocating $425,000 each fiscal year to support at risk youth at Mahoning County High School

  • Providing $150,000 in FY 2022 for the City of East Liverpool to acquire, demolish, or rehabilitate abandoned houses and conduct property cleanup activities

  • Appropriating $200,000 in FY 2022 for Youngstown State University's Mahoning Valley Workforce Partnership

  • Allocating $150,000 to buy land for a new fire station for the Lisbon Village Fire Depart

The bill now returns to the Ohio House of Representatives, where it is expected to be referred to a conference committee and the House and Senate versions will be reconciled.
