Ohio Unveils Nearly $2.4 Billion in Building Projects in New Budget

Columbus: Gov. John Kasich and Republican lawmakers unveiled nearly $2.4 billion in planned building projects, outlined as part of a new biennial capital budget to be considered by the Ohio House and Senate soon.

 

The total includes $675 million for school repairs, about $450 million for colleges and universities, $369 million for road, bridge and related public works projects, $100 million in Clean Ohio funding for farmland, open spaces and related projects, and $574 million for state agencies' capital needs.
