$100M to address water quality with sewer improvements
Senate Minority Leader Joe Schiavoni introduced Senate Joint Resolution 4 (SJR 4), a bipartisan resolution to address water quality issues and create jobs throughout Ohio. The resolution would permit the state to issue bonds for sewer and water capital
improvements for municipal corporations, counties, townships and other governmental entities. The resolution is identical to Senator Schiavoni's widely supported Senate Joint Resolution 3, which received hearings--but no vote--in the 131st General
If Ohio voters approve this resolution, the General Assembly would be able to authorize up to $100 million per fiscal year over a 10-year period for sewer and water capital improvements, for a total investment of $1 billion.
This plan would not raise taxes.
"Ohio's underground infrastructure is deteriorating rapidly," said Leader Schiavoni. "Current funding sources cannot keep up with the rising costs of critical infrastructure maintenance and upgrades.."
