In order to make Ohio as competitive as it can be on a national scale, the state legislature has made targeted and focused investments in areas aimed to spur the desired growth. Recently, the General Assembly approved and the governor signed the capital improvements bill, which provides funding for the renovation of facilities throughout the state.
Moving forward, the Ohio House will be looking at the governor’s Mid-Biennium Budget Review proposal, which runs a fine-toothed comb through last year’s budget. That bill also focuses on the importance of capital improvements and job creation techniques. Ohio has come a long way in the previous year, jumping from 48th to 9th in job creation nationwide and first in the Midwest. Much of the work we will be doing in the coming months will be to continue that positive momentum.
