Gov. Mike DeWine signs bill sending money to Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Tower City, Rock Hall

COLUMBUS, Ohio – COLUMBUS, Ohio – Gov. Mike DeWine signed a bill into law Tuesday that will provide $22.8 million in construction and renovation projects in Cuyahoga County.

Recipients include the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, the City Block redevelopment plan in Tower City in Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In all, the bill provides for $2.5 billion in capital construction projects.

Senate Bill 310 is sponsored by Sen. Matt Dolan, a Chagrin Falls Republican.

The bill was originally written to send $350 million in federal CARES Act money to counties, cities and townships to fund their pandemic-related expenses. About two weeks ago, as the capital budget was crafted, lawmakers inserted it into SB 310.

The $22.8 million going to Cuyahoga County is part of $171.4 million going to local projects throughout the state.

The bill also includes $452 million for college and university construction projects, $300 million for K-12 school buildings and about $281 million for prisons.

The state’s Public Works Commission will get $280 million, part of which will be distributed to local governments through grants and loans for roads, bridges, wastewater treatment systems and other infrastructure projects.

Furthermore, the bill specifically allows Cuyahoga County to use lodging tax money to support tourism programs.

SB 310 creates the Holocaust and Genocide Memorial and Education Commission, though it doesn’t send any money to the commission. It extends for another year the state’s moratorium on issuing new or transferring existing licenses for fireworks manufacturers and wholesalers.
