Ohio Lawmakers push for transit funding (from a $6M to $150M increase) as gas tax is considered

As a result, State Representative Michael Skindell and Terrence Upchurch, both Democrats, announced a bill that would increase the state’s investment in public transit from $6 million to $150 million using a mix of state general revenue funds and federal flex dollars. They say, increasing investment in public transit will help the economy by helping employers connect with a qualified workforce that has a reliable mode of transportation to and from their job.
