COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) introduced legislation this week in the Ohio Senate to authorize the sale of the Medina County Bicentennial License Plate.

The specialty license plate will commemorate the 1818 establishment of Medina county. Petitions were circulated earlier this year to gather the required signatures needed to submit a proposal to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Once the bill is passed by both chambers and signed by the governor, the plate will be available for purchase next year.

"I'm happy to sponsor this legislation," said Obhof. "This is an opportunity for Medina county residents to celebrate our community and showcase the history of our great county."

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

Senate Bill 230 mirrors House Bill 344, which was introduced in September by State Representatives Steve Hambley (R-Brunswick) and Darrell Kick (R-Loudonville).
