Columbus - 
State Senator Troy Balderson (R- Zanesville) today praised Honda of America Manufacturing and the Walmart Foundation for their generous donation of $150,000 to the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB). The money will be used to help school districts defray the transportation costs to the Ohio Statehouse for student field trips and educational visits. "It is so important that we actively engage our children in the happenings of the world around them," Balderson said. "During a visit to the Statehouse, our kids have the opportunity to learn about the history of the State of Ohio, meet with their legislators, and begin to formulate an understanding of state government. Honda and Walmart were very generous to fund this important initiative." As in the past, local schools will be able to apply to CSRAB for assistance with the costs associated with transporting children to and from Ohio's Capital. Information on the program can be found on the Statehouse's website,
