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 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.
