COLUMBUS—State Senator Bob Hackett (R-London) announced nearly $3 million in key Capital Budget projects across Senate District 10. This is the second phase of the process following last week’s announcement of a $350 million investment by the Senate in Ohio communities from the One-Time Strategic Community Investment Fund.

"These are all great investments that will have a long-standing positive impact," Hackett said. "The funds directly serve our communities here in Ohio. From health services to parks to the justice center, this funding will help keep our future bright." 

Some of the projects funded in Senator Hackett's district include:

Clark County 
• Advanced Radiation Therapy: $750,000
• Clark County Family Justice Center: $500,000

Clinton County
• Preservation and Progress for the Historic Murphy Theatre: $500,000
• Galvin Park Enhancement Project: $130,000
• Preservation of General JW Denver's Home - Rombach Place: $50,000

Greene County 
• Central State College of Allied Health & Human Services: $1,000,000

The Capital Budget also includes $600 million for new construction and facility upgrades at Ohio's public schools and $575 million for local infrastructure projects such as roads and water and sewer projects.

The legislature approves a Capital Budget every two years, funding needed improvements to public services and facilities across the state, including schools, infrastructure, and mental health and addiction facilities.

Senate Bill 292 contains the Capital Budget and hearings will start Tuesday in the Senate Finance Committee. See a full list of Capital Budget projects by clicking here, and follow On the Record to keep updated on this year’s budget process.
