Fiscal Year 2013-2014
In early 2012, Governor John Kasich announced his biennial capital budget proposal for fiscal years 2013 and 2014. This capital budget - Ohio's first in four years - makes more than $1.74 billion in fiscally responsible investments to maintain and improve the state's educational and public-service infrastructure. Focusing on schools, higher education, technological research and workforce development, the capital budget directs limited, but strategically targeted state dollars in ways that help keep Ohio a leader in the competitive world economy.
The General Assembly considered the Governor's proposal and passed the capital budget in House Bill 482, signed on April 2, 2012. Information concerning this legislation can be found in the links below:
