$2.4B construction budget clears Ohio House



Published: Wed, March 26, 2014 @ 3:30 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio House has passed a nearly $2.4 billion state construction budget that funds a host of community, school, park and prison projects.

It now goes to the Senate, where a committee started hearings today.

The proposal directs $675 million toward primary and secondary schools and $450 million toward public colleges and universities for repairs, renovations and new buildings.

Another $574 million goes for maintenance, renovation and cost-saving projects at state-owned facilities, including parks and prisons.

Local road, bridge, sewer and other infrastructure projects would get $369 million. An additional $100 million goes to the Clean Ohio green space preservation program.

Gov. John Kasich’s administration estimates that projects funded under the bill would create 31,000 jobs over several years.
