STATEHOUSE - 

Senator Gayle Manning (R–North Ridgeville) today announced the introduction of Ohio’s 2014 Capital Budget, which provides local investment dollars to support individual communities’ construction priorities. The bill funds needed improvements to public facilities across the state including schools, colleges and universities, and parks.
 
The legislature generally approves a capital budget every two years in order to fund pressing construction and maintenance projects around the state. The plan also serves as an important mechanism in creating Ohio jobs and moving the state’s economy forward.
 
“Community projects are the foundation for continued economic development in our state,” Manning stated.  “I look forward to seeing our local educational, cultural, and infrastructure projects come to fruition through this capital budget and the investments they will make in our community for generations to come.”
 
Once fully enacted, Ohio’s proposed new public construction budget will create approximately 31,000 new jobs over the next several years from the $2.386 billion it injects into needed repairs, maintenance and construction of publicly owned buildings and other infrastructure at the state and local level.
 
The capital budget includes:

  • $675 million for local school construction, including repairs, renovations and new primary and secondary education facilities;
     
  • $454.5 million for Ohio’s 37 public colleges and universities;
     
  • $369 million for local infrastructure projects administered by the Ohio Public Works Commission, including upgrades, replacement and new construction of local roads and bridges, storm and sanitary sewers, water lines and other vital infrastructure;
     
  • $100 million for the Clean Ohio program to improve outdoor recreational opportunities and fund the preservation of open spaces and farmlands;
     
  • $574.3 million for maintenance and renovations at state-owned facilities including Ohio State Parks, state prisons, mental health facilities and other public facilities.
