COLUMBUS—State Senator Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) today announced the rollout of the state’s capital budget, a $3.5 billion investment in Ohio’s infrastructure and local community projects.

The legislature generally approves a capital budget every two years, and the bill funds needed improvements to public services and facilities across the state, including schools, roads and bridges, and mental health and addiction facilities. This year’s capital budget includes investments into Ohio’s schools, community centers, natural resources, and more.

Senator Reineke (R-Tiffin) secured more than $4.7 million in funding for multiple projects across Seneca, Sandusky, Wyandot, Crawford, Marion, Morrow, and Union Counties.

“I am very pleased with the funding we were able to secure from this year’s Capital Budget,” Reineke said. “I always enjoy working with local leaders and project developers to come up with great projects that will benefit the local communities of the 26th Senate District.”
