Clean Ohio Funding Update
Ohio’s budget director told legislators last week that full funding of $100 million for the Clean Ohio program WILL be included in the yet to be introduced state capital improvement budget which is very likely to pass before the end of the year. This is a huge win for OPRA.
The recommended capital budget includes $62.5 million in new appropriations for the Clean Ohio Program within the budgets of three state agencies. This is in addition to the $37.5 million previously appropriated.
A formal bill is being drafted and we expect it to pass within the next two weeks or so.
