Senate President Larry Obhof delivers sponsor testimony on legislation authorizing the Medina County Bicentennial License Plate.
COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) announced that Ohio Governor John Kasich has signed into law Senate Bill 134, which authorizes the sale of the Medina County Bicentennial License Plate.

"The bicentennial license plate symbolizes the rich history of Medina County and provides an opportunity to celebrate our community," said Obhof, who co-sponsored the bill.

Proceeds from the sale of the specialty plate will benefit the Medina County Historical Society, which is planning the county's bicentennial activities in 2018 and represents 18 historical societies and museums around the county. 

The bill language authorizing the special plate was originally passed as Senate Bill 230, which was sponsored by Obhof. A companion bill in the House was sponsored by State Representatives Steve Hambley (R-Brunswick) and Darrell Kick (R-Loudonville).

The Medina County Bicentennial provision was added to Senate Bill 134 to expedite its passage into law. That bill includes a number of additional provisions creating specialty license plates supporting other causes throughout the state. The bill also names portions of state highways to honor and memorialize Ohio's first responders and military service members.
