Governor John R. Kasich today signed into law Senate Bill 201, sponsored by Senator Kevin Bacon (R–Minerva Park), which would authorize a land transfer from The Ohio State University to Step Up Academy. Ownership of the land will save the organization $360,000 per year in mortgage payments, thus allowing them to serve approximately 75 additional children.
