The Ohio House version of a capital re-appropriations bill, HB 670, was released Wednesday.

  • The bill "will allow funding for previously approved construction projects focused on health, safety and jobs to continue uninterrupted into the new fiscal year."

  • Lawmakers have until end of the fiscal year on June 30 to approve any re-appropriations.

  • While an Ohio Senate re-appropriations bill has not been formally introduced yet, Senate Finance Chair Matt Dolan estimated it could contain about $1.2 billion.

The Senate Local Government, Public Safety, & Veterans Affairs Committee held its second hearing on HB 242, regarding auxiliary containers; GCP has weighed-in on this issue and the legislation.

  • The Committee passed an amended version of HB 242 that included a 12-month sunset amendment.

  • Pending passage on the Ohio Senate floor, the House would either need to concur with the Senate changes or send the legislation to a conference committee to resolve the differences between the bills.
